Situated not far from Nantes in the Loire valley, Domaine de Bellevue is a young wine estate created in 2005 by the talented young winemaker Jérôme Bretaudeau. Internships with Jo Landon and Guy Bossard gave him the taste for natural winemaking. Thus, Jérôme is only working the vineyards according to organic principles (organic reconversion since 2009).
Later, in 2001, Jérôme took over the small family estate of 2 hectares in Gétigné and started working there on weekends and holidays. He finally set up in 2005 with 6 hectares of vineyards and did his 1st vintage the very same year, the Domaine de Bellevue was born.
