In the year 1904, Gabriel Bruneteau founded the Domaine du Grand Moulin in Saint Aubin de Blaye. He was elected mayor in 1921, while starting operations for Vignobles Gabriel & Co, because to his unrivaled enthusiasm for wine and people.
Three years after his death, Vignobles Gabriel & Co. has faced an identity dilemma as it has grown into grain and cattle production. Despite the fact that much has changed, the vines have remained, planted specifically for the purpose of producing Ugni Blanc, a component of dry white wines and Cognac. When Vignobles Gabriel & Co returned to its beginnings, it was only four generations old.
In 1985, the estate was inherited by Jean-François Reaud, Gabriel Bruneteau’s great-great grandson. He modernized the seven-hectare vineyard to preserve the family’s legacy. Towards the end of the 1990s, the 25-hectare property was renamed Château Le Grand Moulin. In 2011, Jean-François Reaud named an 81-hectare plot of land dedicated to conventional farming Château Les Aubiers.
In order to respond to consumer demand, Jean-François Reaud created a partnership with adjacent farmers to facilitate Right Bank Wine’s distribution and advertising. He sees their wines’ success as proof of the advantages of collaborating with reliable partners.
To spread their horizons even more, they entered a number of their wines in the JAPAN Accolades 2021, all of which garnered awards in their own right, demonstrating the Vignobles Gabriel & Co. culture.
