The winery was founded in 1987 and is situated near the town of Chinon, at the locality known as Les Chesnaies. The estate cultivates Cabernet Franc (for all reds and rosés) and Chenin Blanc on approximately 13 hectares (32 acres) of vines situated between Chinon and the village of Cravant-les-coteaux. The winery has been practicing organic farming for over 20 years and was certified Biodynamic (Biodyvin) in 2012; no chemical synthesis products are used to produce the wines, leaving them to natural methods to be practiced on the vines and in the cellar in an effort to accentuate the purity of our terroirs and allow us to develop wines with personality.
