Domaine Guyot (or Dom. Olivier Guyot, or Domaine Guyot Albert et Olivier) is a family run winery in the northern Cote de Nuits in Cote d'Or in Burgundy. Olivier Guyot has been in charge of the estate since the early 1990s. The total vineyard area is 15 hectares. The vineyards are both in Marsannay-la-Côte and in Gevrey-Chambertin.

The vineyards at Domaine Olivier Guyot are farmed bio-dynamically, and thus of course also organic. However, Guyot does not adhere to any organisation so has no official organic or biodynamic label. He considers it is too much of an administrative burden. Domaine Olivier Guyot is one of the small number of vineyards in Burgundy who use a horse for the work in the vineyards. They have a work horse called Indigo that is used for ploughing and soil preparation. (Many people think soil compacting due to use of heavy tractors is a problem in modern farming.). In the vineyard Olivier works with careful management of the vines: leave-thinning and crop-thinning as needed, to produce high quality grapes and concentrated yet elegant wines.

Domaine Guyot makes a range of Burgundy wines, both red from pinot noir, white from chardonnay (e.g a Bourgogne Blanc), and even the in Burgundy rarely seen rosé. They also make a white from aligoté grapes, Bourgogne Aligoté. In addition to vineyards in Marsannay-la-Côte they have vineyard plots in Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, and Morey-Saint-Denis.
