Vine farm in the city of Angers (Anjou) in the Maine-et-Loire department in north-eastern France. The origin is in a rose nursery founded in 1815 by Jean-Pierre Vibert (1777-1866) in Chénevières-sur-Marne near Paris. Vibert moved the business to Angers in 1839 and worked intensively on rose cultivation with over 600 creations, of which around 60 have survived to this day. He also grew fruit such as pears and vines. At least one variety that is still used today comes from him, that is Muscat Ottonel, In relevant sources, the name Robert Moreau is often given as a vine grower. It is probably meant by M. Robert, who worked for Jean-Pierre Vibert from 1846 and bought his business in 1850. M. Robert married the daughter of a M. Moreau, who also ran a vine (?) Or rose growing business. Robert inherited this business after the death of his father-in-law in 1856 and changed the company name to Moreau-Robert. The sorts Almeria. Blanc d'Ambre. Damascus Black. Madeleine Angevine. Madeleine Royale. Muscat St. Laurent and Muscat Ottonel have arisen around these people / companies.
