Passionate Women and Men !
Whether in the office, in the vineyards or in the cellar… We take care to maintain the fragile balance of a team where everyone brings their talent, skills and motivation, while respecting each other and our philosophy.
A short presentation of each of us is necessary....
Philippe, the eldest of the family, graduated from an HND at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, joined his father on the estate in 1986. Ingenious and always looking for solutions to make work less difficult and more efficient, Philippe focuses most of his time on working the vines. What is his objective? Bringing high quality grapes to the cellar and always respecting our terroirs. And when he has some free time, he loves repairing tractors.
Thierry is the little brother of Philippe! After an HND in wine marketing obtained in 1991 in Mâcon, Thierry joined his brother and father on the estate. Naturally meticulous and organized, what he prefers is to take care of his wines, the cellar, the labelling, etc. He also delivers the products to our customers in Western France!
If you come to see us at La Minière, it is certainly Pascale, Philippe’s wife, that you will see first! After training as a secretary and accountant, Pascale joined the field in 1986. She manages all the administrative aspects, wine tourism, welcoming customers, managing our cottage!
Tanguy joined the estate’s team in 1991 after training in viticulture at the Briacé high school. So, after 27 years at the estate, the least we can say is that he knows the vines and the cellar like the back of his hand!
Since 1994, Jimmy has acquired all his know-how from Philippe and Thierry. Jimmy, what he likes to do is prune, take care of his vines but also and of course work in the cellar with the toppings (filling the barrels) for example! Whether in the cellar or in the vineyard, the wine grower’s profession no longer holds any secrets for him…
Maxime joined us in 2013. His phone, computer and car are his faithful companions so that Muscadet is known all over the world!
We couldn’t finish our little team tour without mentioning our Super Papi, André, who turned 87 last February! His happiness is therefore to tinker, to take care of the vegetable garden and above all to always have an eye on what is done beautifully at Domaine Ménard-Gaborit…
