Domaine Dujac

Domaine Dujac is a Burgundy wine producer. The domaine is run by the Seysses family; the founder, Jacques Seysses, is still involved in its operation, but his sons, Jeremy and Alec and Jeremy's wife Diana have run the domaine for the past several vintages.

The domaine was founded in 1967 by Jacques Seysses, the son of a wealthy biscuit manufacturer, when he bought Domaine Marcel Graillet and the 4.5 hectares (11 acres) that Graillet held. Prior to this, Seysses had spent time as an apprentice at Domaine de la Pousse d'Or. As Graillet was a poor domaine that mainly sold wine to négociants, he found himself in the position of both needing to find a customer base while upgrading the winery; neither was accomplished until 1969, when the domaine's first bottling was released, mainly to restaurants, courtesy of Jacques' father's contacts through his biscuit company. By this time, the domaine expanded to include small holdings in Echézeaux and Bonnes-Mares. The domaine kept expanding its vineyard holdings, increasing acreage to 11.5 hectares (28 acres).

The domaine began using organic techniques in one third of their vineyards in 2001 as an experiment to see if it was feasible for them to do so for the entire domaine. It was, and the estate went all organic, including certification, in 2008.

In 2005, the domaine divided up the purchase of Domaine Charles Thomas with the owners of Château de Puligny-Montrachet, taking over the Charles Thomas interests in Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée, Les Beaumonts and part of Vosne-Romanée, Les Malconsorts. To finance the purchase, some of the Charles Thomas plots were sold off immediately after purchase. This brought the vineyard holdings to approximately 15.5 hectares (38 acres).
