Domaine Labruyère is one of the oldest wineries in the Moulin-a-Vent appellation.
Founded almost 200 years ago, the domaine is strongly attached to traditional values: Family, hard work and respect for Nature.
The spirit of a great wine is born from the symbiosis between Men and Nature.
Sublimating the great terroirs requires patience, know-how and a real commitment to respecting the environment.
— Édouard Labruyère, passionate winemaker
In 1850, Jean-Marie Labruyere, wine grower, settled in les Thorins, a hamlet of Romanèche-Thorins. He acquired 25 acres of well-located vineyards.
Since then, several generations of Labruyere have been running the estate and have acquired the famous "Clos du Moulin-a-Vent", unique Monopole of the appellation. Located right by the iconic windmill, this is one of the most precious jewels of Domaine Labruyere.
In 2008, Edouard Labruyere took over the responsibility of the estate, convinced that all plots are located on the best terroirs of the region. He impulsed Domaine Labruyere with a new dynamic, and it is today considered as one of the spearheads of Beaujolais region.
Today the family has 4 exceptional estates: Domaine Labruyère, Domaine Jacques Prieur, Chateau Rouget, JM Labruyere, and Labruyère-Prieur.
