La Soufrandière, an old property located in Vinzelles, in the southern part of the Mâcon wine-producing region (in Southern Burgundy), is purchased by Jules Bret (our paternal grandfather), a Professor of Medicine. At that point, the vineyards covered an area of only one hectare, grown in Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat “Les Quarts” appellation d’origine contrôlée. The only sign remaining of its past wine-growing activity was a “tinailler” (a building typical of the Mâcon region, used to house vats), complete with an old-fashioned wine-press.
