Domaine Henri Bourgeois is a family domain wine producer in the upper Loire Valley. It is locate in the AOC region Sancerre, but the winery is in the small village of Chavignol, famous for its goat cheese the Crottin de Chavignol. It is probably one of the larger wine makers and wine producer in the area, making wine both from its own vineyards and from bought in grapes as a négociant.

Their own vineyards extend over some 65 hectares in various locations. One of the better known lieu-dits (place names) is Mont Damné, so called for its steep slopes. Most of the vineyards are planted with sauvignon blanc grapes, as can be expected in this appellation, making white wine. They also do some red wine from pinot noir grapes.

Henri Bourgeois, under the management of Jean-Marie Bourgeois, has also established itself in New Zealand, with a winery called Clos Henri.
