Domaine Sébastien Brunet
Sébastien Brunet is well-known as an introverted, softly-spoken oracle of information when it comes to the vines and land of Vouvray, having been born and brought up within the appellation. The estate has been in the family for 6 generations, during which time it has grown from 3 to 15 hectares. Originally, Sebastien’s ancestors simply sold the fruit that they produced to the local cooperative. However, in the mid-1970s Sébastien’s father Michel inherited the vineyard and dedicated himself to producing wines solely from their own fruit. Following his father’s death in 2006, Sébastien took over at the helm of the estate and since then, has risen to prominence among a new generation of Vouvray producers who are making wines in a drier style and utilising minimal intervention techniques.
