The vineyard of Tuquet Monceau is located in Périgord Pourpre on the commune of Saint Vivien, vineyard of Bergerac.
Located halfway between Saint Emilion and Bergerac, this great hillside terroir has been worked by Cécile and Eric
Goubault de Brugière since 1989.
The house is perched on a hillock, hence its original Occitan name: le Tuquet.
Terroir is important when you want to produce fine wines. Clay and limestone are combined with excellent drainage thanks to the configuration of the plots.
22 vintages have followed one another but the passion of the vine always flows in our veins.
From 3 ha in 1989 and 20 ha of meadows, we exploit today 26 ha of vineyards and 60 ha of meadows where 50 cattle of Limousin breed are raised as well as cereals produced for their food.
The quality motivation comes first, the ecological orientation also pushed us to convert the vineyard to organic farming to be certified since the 2012 vintage.
Technical investments are also part of the future projects to perpetuate the operation.
3 colors, 3 appellations & 4 vintages characterize Tuquet Monceau : Montravel dry white, Bergerac Rosé, Bergerac Red including a top-of-the-range vintage aged in oak barrels
We will be happy to welcome you to discover our passion and taste our wines.

No, at Tuquet Monceau the wine does not come from the well, but from our great Earth. It is shaped with passion, worked with our hands, our heart for our greatest happiness and that of our customers.
One of the characteristics of Montravel is its altitude. The mills still compose the panorama of our hillsides like this mille of Saint Vivien.
