Domaine Collotte in Burgundy has a long history of family tradition. The vines on Louis and Lucie Collotte's farm were hit by phylloxera in 1910. Their young son Jean married Thérèse Miallot, but was killed in a tragic cycling accident. The estate was taken over by Thérèse, assisted by her father-in-law Louis Collote. They were joined in 1950 by Jean-Jacques, Thérèse's son.
In 1981, Jean-Jacques' 16-year-old son Philippe Collotte took over the 3 hectares of vines in Burgundy. Self-taught, he and his wife Murielle developed the estate over the years. His efforts were rewarded in 1987. Marsannay became a Village appellation in red, white and rosé. Philippe Collotte also trained alongside his daughter Isabelle, a brilliant winemaker who joined her father in 2014.

Its land is located in the Marsannay and Burgundy appellations, as well as in slightly more distant parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny and Fixin.
