Our opinion on this winery

Better than waffle, we asked Sylvie Augereau to tell us about HER Vines. "These Vines” are like the small paradise I had been expected since I was 15. My grandfather passed them on to me in 2014, when become old. 1 and ½ ha with amazing view on the Loire between Saumur and Angers. Not much but still a lot as I do all on foot and by hand, even labels are home made. 

½ ha is planted with one hundred years old “Chenins” (the chenin vine variety was first mentioned in 845 in the village Abbey... ) and ½ ha is planted with 80 years old “cabernets francs”. A very nice selection giving small airy grapes and producing as little as 15 hectolitres/ha… One thousand bottles… No sulphur input. Wine ageing process half in old barrel and half in 400 litre barrels of new and noble wood.
