Julien Braud - Monnières (44)
Julien Braud is a young winegrower in Monnières near Nantes. He learned the vine and wine professions from his father on the family estate after studying agricultural engineering with a speciality in viti-vini. After a few years of experience, he wanted to create his own estate in order to highlight the terroirs of the beautiful Muscadet region and to showcase the qualities of the region's iconic grape variety, the "Melon de Bourgogne".
Thus, since 2012, Julien has been developing his estate on a human scale of 7.80 hectares, all organically farmed. This allows him to respect his objective of producing authentic wines with character and to restore the reputation of the Muscadet crus.
