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 in Saint-Emilion.

Valandraud Blanc is born in the 2003 vintage, from the vines which were planted in 2000 on contiguous plots to Château Valandraud ones.

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.
