Welcome to the Moulin de Chauvigné
Creative vine growers of happiness…
1992 – We arrived at the Mill …. We started with 3 hectares of vines. The beginnings were difficult, we completly created this vineyard, built a cellar, bought equipment and especially we constituted ourselves customers.
2016- Today the vineyard of 3 hectares is located on the appellation of Savennières areas (7 ha) and Rochefort sur Loire (6 ha) in the Loire Valley close to Angers.
Savennières and Rochefort sur loire are slopes of schist and sun
The Loire Valley is the 3rd largest appellation region in France, comprising a total of 85 appellations and denominations. In 2000, a part including our area has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.
Thanks to a moderate climate, to the subsoil composed mainly of slate, sandstone, carboniferous schists and volcanic rock, to the ocean air that comes up the river and to the very special Loire sunlight the production allows fruity and diversified wines.
Our wine is sold directly without intermediary in France but also abroad (CANADA and U.S.)
We are winemaker’s owners. Our expertise is based on respect for the local soil and nature. With a great knowledge of each plot Christian practices a sustainable viticulture, all his good care produces beautiful grapes. It is with the same rigor as each soil is revealed by vinification carried out with passion by Sylvie.
