Domaine Hubert Brochard produces classically styled Sancerre blanc, rosé, and rouge from their family-owned winery in Chavignol. Aimée Brochard inherited her father’s vines in the early 1900s, growing grapes and raising goats to produce cheese with the help of her husband Hubert. The domaine is now run by the fifth and sixth generation of Brochards with 152 acres under vine in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, and Vin de Pays du Val de Loire. Today, brothers Daniel, Jean-François, and Benoît Brochard run the domaine with the help of Daniel’s daughters, Caroline and Anne-Sophie, and produce wines that express their region’s terroir.

The domaine is composed of 113 acres of Sauvignon Blanc and 39 acres of Pinot Noir spread across the communes of Chavignol, Sancerre, Sainte-Gemme, Ménétréol, Saint-Satur, Thauvenay, and Bannay with additional vineyards in Pouilly-Fumé. These diverse holdings give the Brochard’s a range of soils from which to build wines of depth and complexity.
