The Breussin estate in Vouvray has been family-owned and operated for five generations and covers 37 acres of Chenin Blanc. Denis Breussin tends to the vineyard with respect for the vines and the environment. Denis' holdings are located in the valley of Vaugondy where he produces 4 styles of Vouvray: Sec, Demi-Sec, Moelleux and Brut. With time and knowledge of their vineyards, Denis have carefully selected each plot for a different vinification: those nearest the Loire river for their Sec, those more North and closer to the hills for their Demi-Sec, and those on flatter areas and farthest from the river for their Brut.
