Domaine Julien Braud
Julien Braud is from Monnières in the Sèvre et Maine appellation. Julien owns just over seven hectares, with only around five hectares going into his production. He took over the family estate around age 29, joining forces with the growing young winemakers in the region. His career in the business began at his family’s estate (Fief aux Dames) in 2011. The rest is history!
This domaine is certified organic, and encorporates biodynamic practices. Julien does so by utilizing horses in the vineyard, natural yeasts for fermentation, and aging wines on leas in underground cement vats.
