Sitting at the zenith of the global wine realm, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, universally known as "DRC," is a legendary Burgundy wine estate located in Vosne-Romanée. Co-directed by wine virtuoso Aubert de Villaine, DRC stands out with its 28 hectares of grand cru vineyards producing extraordinary and incredibly age-worthy cuvees.
The estate is an undisputed leader in biodynamic farming, enhancing the vineyards' ecosystem, elevating the quality benchmarks of these prestigious appellations, and promoting a holistic approach to viticulture. Their stringent practices encompass regular plowing, striving for low yields, and implementing séléction massale, a propagation method that ensures the vineyard's genetic diversity, leading to wines that surprise and impress with each vintage.
DRC's reverence for tradition extends to their cellars, where winemaking processes are meticulously carried out. Native yeast fermentations, gentle extractions, and aging in new oak barrels reveal the nuanced complexity of their wines. The result is an array of cerebral, expressive, and rare wines that are among the world's most sought-after.
The grandeur of DRC stems from its seven grand cru vineyards - La Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Romanée-St.-Vivant, Grands Échézeaux, Echézeaux, and Montrachet in Chassagne. La Romanée-Conti and La Tâche are monopoles - vineyards entirely owned by the Domaine - undeniably among Burgundy's finest. These vineyards give rise to the most seductive, sublime, and rare wines sought after by connoisseurs worldwide.
Uniquely, the vineyards of DRC are recognized as UNESCO world heritage sites, emphasizing their extraordinary terroir and wine production. The limited production, coupled with the prestige and historicity of DRC, contributes to their wines' high demand and exceptional value at auctions.
In essence, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is more than a winery; it's an embodiment of Burgundy's age-old traditions, unflinching dedication to quality, and the profound connection between land, people, and wine.

In Stock orders going out via Local Same Day placed before 2pm (pst) on business days will go out the same day. Weather permitting, In Stock orders going out via FedEx, Climate Controlled Ground and Temperature Controlled typically ship within 1-2 business days unless requested otherwise. We always do what we can to make sure your order won’t spend the weekend in a non-temperature controlled logistics hub and in order to facilitate this, we may hold your order for shipment the following week unless you tell us not to.
We do not fulfill partial orders by default, so if your order contains a combination of In Stock and In Transit/Pre Arrival items, we'll automatically hold the In Stock items until everything is ready. If you wish to receive your In Stock items in advance of your In Transit and/or Pre Arrival items, we do ask that you place two separate orders. If you forget to place two separate orders, but still want to receive your In Stock items first, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of it for you.
