The Brunet vineyard covers 13 hectares on the
hillsides of Vouvray just to the East of Tours. It is farmed by
Georges Brunet and his son, Nicolas. They come from a family of
wine growers of eight generations and cultivate the vineyard very
traditionally. They show great respect for the vines (all the
harvest is manual) and the environment (sensible use of weed killers
and ploughing of the vineyard).
The wines are very typical; they are fruity,
powerful and often complex. They have a lot of character and are
produced to mature. They are made using only one grape variety:
Chenin, known locally as Pineau de La Loire. The wines cover the
range of sparkling to still and Sec, Demi-Sec, Moelleux and Doux.
