Jean-marc Brocard

Jean-Marc Brocard learned the art of the vine with Emile Petit, his stepfather, and his cousin, P'tit Louis. In 1973, Jean-Marc Brocard chose to settle in Préhy and build his own Domaine in the middle of vineyards. Over the years, the quality of the wines of Jean-Marc Brocard has been recognized in France and around the world.

Jean-Marc's son, Julien Brocard, moved back to the family estate in the mid 90s after earning a degree in engineering, with a different outlook on the vine and its environment. Nowadays, a large part of the vineyard is cultivated according to the practices of organic and biodynamic farming. We still continue our work in order to improve the quality of our products."
