Established in 1786, the estate has been built up over the last seven generations and now covers 37 acres. The vineyard is situated 5 kilometres North-East of Vouvray, in the vallée de Cousse. The diversity of our wine is due to the rich variety of soils (mostly clay and flint), the various sun exposures and the age of the vines.
In 1987, François PINON, former child psychologist, took over the family estate from his father. Combining traditional techniques (such as short pruning, working the soil and low yields) with the latest technology, François emphasizes ecologically friendly vineyards and cellar practices. He works now with his son Julien, former city planner.
The grape variety that we use is the chenin blanc, 100%. Our wines benefit from the amazing plasticity of this historical grape of the Loire valley. Chenin blanc provides all types of white wines (stills and sparklings).
Brut, non-dosé or demi-sec for the sparklings and sec, demi-sec, moelleux, until great liquoreux (when Fall is very sunny) for the still wines. Thanks to its acidity, the Vouvray is along aging wine. Excellent living memories of the climate, our wines all bear the marks of their vintage birth.
