In 1989, Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti joined by their Parisian friend, Michel Macaux, purchased a 45 ha property south of Aix-en-Provence on a south-facing hillside. Their vision was to set the benchmark of quality in a region that had not yet reached its full potential.
The estate was renamed Triennes as a reference to Triennia, the festival for Bacchus that was historically held every three years during Roman times. The prefix “Tri” is also a reminder of the three original partners. Ultimately, Triennes is about ground breaking quality from a region offering value wine.
