Founded in 1865 domaine Tortochot currently farms 11 hectares of vines in 3 appellations, with most of the vineyards acquired by Gabriel Tortochot in the early 20th century.
Most of the wines in the past were sold to Maison Joseph Drouhin, but with the arrival of Chantal Tortochot in1997 the domaine started to bottle all its wines. In 2013 the domaine finalized conversion to organic viticulture and is now ECO Certified.
