Domaine Marc Jomain (or simply Domaine Jomain) is located in the village of Puligny-Montrachet, not far from the main square. It is owned by the family Jomain and has some 9 hectares of vineyards, mainly in the appellation of Puligny. It is run by the brothers Philippe and Christophe Jomain and their sister Catherine. They took over the winery from their father Marc in 1992.

The vineyards are planted with chardonnay for the white wines. They have parcels in four of the Premier Cru vineyards in Puligny and a substantial chunk (a third of a hectare) in the very exclusive Batard-Montrachet grand cru.

They practice the so called culture raisonnée, sometimes called sustainable vine growing and that could be described as almost, but not quite organic, accepting to do chemical treatments when absolutely needed.

The harvest at Domaine Jomain is traditionally made by hand by a team of pickers in the vineyard. Some of the wine is aged in wood, only a proportion of which is new oak barrels.
