The vineyard domain Château de Brigue started in 1970 as a family venture.
Following the founder Roger Brun’s steps, his son Fernand developed the domain and today, the third generation winemakers and brothers Jean-Michel, Christian, Olivier, and Frederic Brun carry on the tradition in this family owned estate of winery, vineyards, and olive grove. Through the accumulated dedication and know-how of each generation, Château de Brigue raised to an institution of superior winemaking and one of the largest family domains in Provence.
The domain extends over 120 hectares (300 acres) of vineyards in the heart of sun basked Côte de Provence wine country along the legendary Nationale 7 road, between Aix en Provence, Cannes, and Saint Tropez in the South of France.
With 2,000 olive trees, the domain also locally produces virgin olive oil, rich in aroma and taste that brings Mediterranean flavors to a variety of dishes.
Château de Brigue is managed today by the four brothers who carry on the Brun family tradition of serving their Côtes de Provence wine to consumers for nearly half a century.
Jean-Michel is in charge of the vineyards
Frédéric supervises wine making process, oenology, and quality control
Christian is finance director for the domain and manages operations
while Olivier leads sales & markets development, and communication.
