Histoire et anecdotes

The Valandraud estate was founded in 1991 when Jean-Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud decided to invest their savings in a 0.6-hectare plot.

Valandraud was classified “B” as First Grand Cru during the 2012 Saint Emilion Grand Crus classification.

Valandraud is named after the combination of the word “val” (“valley” in French) in reference to the vineyard geographical situation within the Fongaban Valley, and “Andraud”, Murielle surname, Jean-Luc Thunevin’s wife.

Jean-Luc Thunevin is considered as the Father of garage wines, a very popular micro-cuvée, with fruity and woody explosions, free of the appellation’s very stringent rules.
