Producer

The Domaine Horgelus was created in 1978 by Joseph Le Menn. Breton by origin, he was attracted by the charm of the South West, its gastronomy and its art of living. The Domaine is run now by Yoan Le Menn, his son. Yoan is from the young generation of oenologues who know perfectly how to combine modernity and experience.
