Domaine Bart has been in existence for six generations in Marsannay-la-Côte, Burgundy, near Dijon. Originally a 6-hectare estate, it was considerably enlarged in 1985, thanks to the inheritance of Domaine Clair-Daü. The latter was divided between several estates, including those of Bruno Clair and his cousin Martin Bart. Martin and his sister Odile Bart have been running the estate since 1982. The estate produces mainly red wine (on 18 hectares), as well as white wine and rosé.

In the Marsannay appellation, the estate offers numerous climats such as Au Champ Salomon, Les Finottes, Les Longeroies and Les Échezots.
