Bruno Dubois


Domaine Bruno Dubois, Loire Valley

Growing up in a wine-loving family, Bruno Dubois took over his father and uncle’s land in 2002 in Saumur-Champigny. Even though this was not the easiest choice, Bruno instantly began to convert the vineyards to organics, and continues to push himself to work entirely biodynamically. He aims to produce wines with as little human interference as possible to truly reflect the integrity and history of the terroir, as well as to produce the best, healthiest and most ‘alive’ wines possible. 

"The desire [to convert to biodynamic principles] has always been there, but it's when you really throw yourself into this practice that you're truly going somewhere." - Bruno Dubois
