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! Their No.1 Cuvee is made entirely from premium Marlborough Chardonnay grapes (called “Blanc de Blancs” – typically a style that has more fresh, citrus fruity flavours) and given 24 months lees aging. Lees who? It’s a technique winemakers use to add richness, flavour and aroma.

An elegant style bubbles that looks and tastes like the class act you’d expect from the Le Bruns, all at half the price of entry level French Champagne.
