Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Founded in Sancerre almost five hundred years ago by Pierre-Etienne Mellot, the Mellot dynasty has continued over the centuries to be involved in winemaking. In 1984 Alexandre Mellot took over the estate from his father Joseph, with a vision to extend the vineyards, modernise the winery and develop export sales.

Today, Joseph Mellot is the only estate that owns over 85 hectares of vineyards extended across each of the Centre- Loire’s six appellations: 30 hectares in Sancerre, 24 hectares in Pouilly-Fumé, 14 hectares in Quincy, 11 hectares in Reuilly, 2 hectares in the Coteaux du Giennois and 4 hectares in Menetou-Salon.
