The Story

Created in 1988 by Alain LE CAPITAINE, the estate has only 0.25 ha of vines planted in the family garden. Over time, the estate expanded. In 1995, Christophe LE CAPITAINE took the initiative to settle with Alain in order to share their knowledge. Since 2013 Florian Le Capitaine, after studying viticulture and oenology, has joined the adventure. Today the estate has 28 hectares of Chenin vines planted on the first slopes of Rochecorbon and a beautiful tufa cellar dating from the 11th century.
