No.1 Family Estate is the family owned wine business of Daniel Le Brun, the Frenchman who’s got Champagne in his blood. The Le Bruns are a family with twelve generations of Champagne wine making in the Champagne region of France. So yep, they know a thing or two about making world class sparkling wine!

Daniel and his family moved to Marlborough in the 80s and used his know-how to produce Champagne-style sparkling wine (“Methode Traditionelle”). The company was then sold to beer, wine and spirit giants Lion while the man himself left to start his own operation, No.1 Family Estate.

The Le Bruns only make one style of wine – but damn they do it well! The Assemblé (it’s pronounced ah-som-blay) is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with 18 months lees aging. Lees who? It’s a technique winemakers use to add richness, flavour and aroma. A class act at half the price of entry level French Champagne.
