Located in the small town of Denice, Manoir du Carra can date its history back to 1850. Passed down from father to son for five generations, the estate is today owned by Jean-Noël Sambardier and his wife. Winemaking is overseen by Damien Sambardier. The winery has 34 hectares planted to vine, which are separated over 50 plots. This includes holdings in the Crus of Brouilly, Julienas, Moulin à Vent and Fleurie. Distinct for the area, the average age of their vines ranges from 50 to 100 years old.
Manoir du Carra Brouilly is made from Gamay harvested from 50 year old vines in the “Combiaty” lieu dit. Vinified with semi-carbonic maceration, it was aged 3 to 4 months on fine lees in old oak casks.
