In 1880, Auguste Drouet laid the foundations to Maison Drouet in Vallet, at the heart of the Muscadet vineyard. His son, Jean-Baptiste Drouet, replaced him at the beginning of the 20th century, at a time when wine was sold in barrels and in bulk. It was the era of cafés, drink stands and village pubs. Worthy successors of Jean-Baptiste in the 1950s, Jean and Jacques, his two sons, changed the company’s name over to Drouet Frères and continued the development of the house by adapting to wine consumption trends. In the middle of the 70s, bulk wine made way for the bottled wine market. It was possible to open up to other regions of France and to cross borders. Drouet Frères began shipping abroad as of 1973.
The perfect reflection of Loire Valley appellations
Towards the end of the 70s, Jean Drouet was on his own at the head of the house after the departure of Jacques and counted on his son, Jean-Philippe to offer him a helping hand. As of 1980, Jean-Philippe, then aged 21 years old, took over as the successor of the family entity and increased its expertise in view of promoting Drouet Frères as a genuine Loire Valley wine house. Specializing nowadays in the production of still wines from throughout the entire region, the house makes resolute choices in terms of product range, with brands perfectly illustrating Loire Valley appellations and grape varieties.
