A Saint-Emilion estate vineyard, family-owned for 4 generations.
The story began in the late 19th century, when Jean-Baptiste BRUNOT who was of Correzian extraction, felt a surge of interest in wine. Moreover, he was a pioneer in selling wines directly to private customers in Northern France, Belgium and Switzerland. He also purchased the estate's first vineyard: Saint Emilion.
Second-generation winegrower Albert BRUNOT has gone on to lead the charge of the expansion and growth of the family estate. To his customers, he was a man of a convivial turn, generous and a relentless pursuer of excellence.
His son Jean-Baptiste BRUNOT, took over operations after graduating with a degree in medicine and oenology from the University of Bordeaux. He definitely expanded the vineyard in 1970 through the acquisition of Château Tour de Grenet, in the Lussac-Saint-Emilion area (controlled designation of origin).
In 1978, Mr and Mrs BRUNOT purchased the Chateau Piganeau in Saint Emilion.
Then in 1984, Mrs BRUNOT took over the family estate of Chateau Maledan (Bordeaux Superieur designation), located ten kilometers east of Bordeaux in the Entre-deux-Mers area, between the Dordogne and the Garonne rivers.
Since 1997, their son Vincent BRUNO, agricultural engineer graduated from the ESITPA (91st) and holder of a degree in oenology from the University of Bordeaux, has been making every effort to preserve the legacy of the BRUNOT family by selling a great portfolio of wines both in France and abroad.
