The Domaine Marc Bredif winery is one of the great names of the Loire. The estate has enjoyed a long and colourful history, having been established in 1893 under the original name of Château les Roches. In 1919, not long after the end of the First World War, Marc Bredif took over from his Uncle and renamed the property to mark the change of ownership. His focus was simple, to forge an unrivalled reputation for excellence amongst the estates of the Loire valley.

He invested heavily in the estate during the 1930’s, building a tremendous circular storage room in the heart of its cellars, which today houses venerable vintages of sweet Vouvray, some of which date back to the 1900’s! The property managed to survive the Second War World War relatively unharmed and remained under family control until the 1980’s. As is so often the case, family intrigue and financial necessity meant that the Domaine had to be sold, and in 1980 Baron Patrick de Ladoucette acquired the estate. Thankfully, the Baron was every bit the conscientious owner and has given new life to Marc Bredif – investing heavily and expanding their holdings to include some of the most prized Vouvray vineyards – 20 hectares in total. Picking exclusively by hand, the Domaine produces some of the most profound and immortal expressions of Chenin Blanc, in a range of styles to suit all wine lovers.

Quite simply, Marc Bredif is a landmark in the Loire, not least because of the consistency of quality across an impressive range of wines.


Vintage Report – 5 Stars & Outstanding, Michael Broadbent (1990 Vintage)
"Another excellent vintage for early-picked dry whites, reds and medium-sweet to sweet wines. Early but uneven flowering. Drought and scorching sun tempered by later rains. Early morning mists in October enabled superb sweet wines to be made. Firmer, less luscious than the ‘89’s."


Vintage Report – Jim’s Loire (1990 Vintage)
"“A great classic” – Lots of charm"
