Jean-Guillaume and Jean-Philippe Bret loved coming for holidays to their grandparents vineyard as chldren. This love led them to decide to study viticulture and oenology. Having gained experience in the wider wine world for eight years, they returned to Burgundy and took over La Soufrandiere in 2000. The started their own label, Bret Brothers, in 2001.
Their ambitious objective adheres to rigorous specifications, using small plots of old vines farmed by passionate vignerons on specific terroirs. This allows them to choose the best grapes from soils they wish to express. The commissioned grapes are hand harvested by the two brothers themselves. Many of the vines are old, with some up to 50 years of age. This drives the intensity of flavour that they consistently produce.
