Operates In


Entreprise viticole implantée près de Montpellier, Maison Le Breton produit les vins de La Jasse, Montlobre et Vignes Des Deux Soleils. Elle est dirigée par Bruno Le Breton, propriétaire œnologue. Maison 100% familiale au double savoir-faire de producteur-négociant, elle s’est développée et a su innover selon un modèle économique unique en France où elle distribue ses vins à des particuliers en Europe via des Vépécistes intermédiaires en leur apportant un service marketing original. Sous l’impulsion d’une gouvernance dynamique et engagée, nous perpétuons de fortes valeurs identitaires héritées des premiers propriétaires du vignoble : exigence, respect, responsabilité, plaisir et partage. Ces mêmes valeurs que l’entreprise partage avec l’ensemble de ses parties prenantes représentent les fondements de sa politique de développement durable.
