Before the French Revolution, trade was organised by cooperatives and wine was sold by the intermediary of barrel makers and sworn wine brokers. These cooperatives had their headquarters in Beaune or Dijon and abided by very strict rules. The transportation of wine in barrels was carried out in very difficult conditions.
It was only in Louis 14th's reign that Burgundy wines were to experience greater fame, from the moment when those high up in the King's court and foreign ambassadors in Paris started to take an interest.
It was in this climate that Pierre Faiveley founded the business in 1825.
