The renowned French Winemaker family Le Brun had one goal: They wanted to prove that New Zealand is the perfect place to produce high end quality sparkling wines. Daniel Le Brun, the founder of No. 1 Family Estate, has been called the Grandfather of Méthode Traditionelle in New Zealand. Daniel is involved in every stage of creating the wines and is somewhat of a perfectionist, never wavering in his commitment to creating wine the way he learned from his father in Champagne.
“Since our first vines were planted, we have created wines that rival the best in the world using methods perfected over 12 generations by our family in Champagne. We are the only winery in New Zealand committed exclusively to producing premium Méthode Traditionelle wine and every bottle we create honours our pursuit of excellence and joie de vivre.”
