With views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and vineyard plantings sloping up the Short Hill Mountain, Breaux Vineyards is situated in a picturesque location ideal for grape growing, in Purcellville in Loudoun County.
Paul Breaux fell in love with this piece of Virginia land and founded the winery in 1994. At the time, he began with the pre-existing grape plantings of just over 1 hectare and has evolved into one of the largest and fastest growing wineries in Virginia. Today they this family owned and run winery has over 40 hectares of vineyards and produce several award-winning wines.
Paul’s daughter, Jennifer Breaux Blosser, manages and operates the winery and vineyards, overseeing sales and events and her husband Christopher Blosser serves as General Manager.
Despite being one of Virginia’s largest winegrowers, Breaux Vineyards is committed to quality and diligently hand harvests, prunes, and hand sorts each cluster before they’re pressed.
At Breaux they have a deep respect for the relationship between the land, the grapes and the hands that tend them. The vineyard crew nurtures the vines and fruit with the utmost of care and respect throughout the year.
David Pagan Castaño, comes from a family who has spent over two generations in the grape growing and winemaking industry. His family owns Bodegas Castaño, one of southeast Spain’s most prominent wineries.
David brings to Breaux years of hands-on experience making wine around the world. He started his winemaking career at his family’s winery and 400 hectare vineyards, and honed his winemaking skills in many of the world’s top wine-producing regions including: Sonoma (California), Marlborough (New Zealand), Cotes-du-Rhône (France), Mallorca (Spain), and most recently in Lanzarote (Canary Islands, Spain). In the Canary Islands at Bodegas Rubicón, David was known for crafting elegant wines, and many of the wines he produced while there received high scores in Guía Peñín, the definitive Spanish wine guide.
