No.1 Family Estate, a Boutique Sparkling Wine Specialist in the Heart of the Marlborough

No.1 Family Wine Estate is a specialist and boutique winery founded by Adele and Daniel Le Brun. They specialize in New Zealand sparkling wines crafting all bottles with the Traditional sparkling wine method. They are the only winery in New Zealand committed exclusively to producing premium Méthode Traditionelle wine. The award-winning winemaker has created wines that rival the best in the world using methods perfected over twelve generations by his family in Champagne. Daniel and Adele established the estate in 1997, and it was their second venture in New Zealand. Adele looks after the business and marketing affairs while Daniel is the chief winemaker. Their son, Remy, and daughter, Virginie, are also a part of the company and actively work to make the winery the best in the world. No.1 Family Estate has won numerous awards and accolades for their wines. Daniel received the National Order of Merit, France’s most valuable non-military award, for his services to New Zealand-France relations and agriculture.

Since 2009, No.1 Family Estate vineyards have a sustainability certificate as they craft sparkling wines while protecting the environment.

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier Cultivated for their Sparkling Wines

The main grapes grown include all traditional Champagne grape varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. Their wines age wonderfully supple and possess a fresh and crisp taste.

The Journey from France to New Zealand to Establish a Winery

Daniel of No.1 Family Estate wanted to make the best Methode Traditionelle wines in the world. After visiting New Zealand, he bought land in Wairau Valley town of Renwick. He thought that the Marlborough could rival the gifted Champagne region of France with their unique soils and climate. Their vineyard is located in the Wairau River bed area and has ideal soils, temperature, and rainfall that makes it perfect for vine cultivation. Since 2009, their vineyards have a sustainability certificate, and they work to protect the environment.
