Domaine du Bourgeais is located in the Loire Valley, on the west coast of France. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the area enjoys a maritime climate which influences the wines and gives them a unique character.
Domaine du Bourgeais has been the story of the Albert family for over 50 years.
Over the years, Edith and Pierrick, who today manage the administrative and winegrowing side of the estate, have developed the family business by focusing on the production of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine. Today the vineyard includes 40 hectares of vines.
The rich experience and inspiration brought back by eldest son Clément from his travels - in Burgundy, the United States, New Zealand and Sancerre -made it only natural for him to join the family estate. With a head full of new ideas, like plot selection, skin maceration, SO2-free winemaking, etc., he is now in charge of the vineyard’s wine sales.
Motivated by this fresh impetus, Benoit, the youngest sibling, joined them in 2020 and is now in charge of machinery.
Domaine du Bourgeais is a certified independent wine producer. Its work stretches from growing the grapes to bottling, ensuring you wines of guaranteed origin and the highest standards of quality.
It is in keeping with this philosophy that we opted to employ sustainable winegrowing methods (High Environmental Value level 3) and are now beginning a conversion to organic farming. The first certified organic vintage will be harvested in 2023.
Pierrick, a winemaker’s son, takes care of the vines and the wines. For the 35 years that he has been doing this job, he knows his vines like the back of his hand.
Edith is responsible of the administration part of the estate and also work at the vineyard. She brings a feminine touch to Domaine du Bourgeais.
Clément (the son) has been raised in the vine growing and winemaking spirit by his parents sincea baby. Just back from abroad, his head full of new ideas, he is responsible for marketing the wines. Nonetheless he doesn’t forget the work involved in the vines and the wine making process.
