The "Maison Joseph Drouhin" with its headquarters and winery in Beaune was founded in 1880 by Joseph Drouhin through the purchase of a wine trading house founded in 1756. Drouhin is still active in this segment today alongside wine production. The company has the exclusive right to market the wines of the Marquis de Laguiche (produced by Drouhin). His son Maurice Drouhin took over the company after the end of the First World War (1914-1918), orientated the company's quality policy towards high-class products and bought plots of land that were sold at very low prices due to the phylloxera disaster and the fungal diseases powdery and downy mildew. He joined the administrative commission of the Hospices de Beaune in 1925 and was its vice-president from 1941 to 1955.
