The story of Domaine Violot-Guillemard begins at the beginning of the XXᵉ century. Joannès Faivre, a distiller at the time, took up winegrowing. His daughter Marie-Louise then took over the estate. She married Louis Violot, who died, and then Jules Guillemard. Today, Domaine Violot-Guillemard takes its name from Marie-Louise's two husbands. Over the generations, it has remained in the Violot-Guillemard family. Thierry Violot-Guillemard, grandson of Louis Violot, took over this Burgundy estate in 1980. In 2007, he bought out the other rightful owners. Since 2019, his son Joannès has been running the estate.
