The Story

Family vineyard covering 3 different estates, managed by mother and daughter Veronique and Aurore. Veronique joined the estate in 1989, after she took over her father. Aurore joined her in 2011 and converted some of the vineyards to certified organic winegrowing methods. The 3 vineyards, all in the Muscadet and surrounding appellations, have each a different story and different terroirs. Château du Coing in Saint Fiacre sur Maine, owes its name to its location at the ‘corner’ of the Sèvre and Maine rivers. Sloping down to the rivers, our plots of vines have a south-facing orientation, some of which with a gradient as steep as 12%. This typical Loire Valley château was built during the reign of Louis XIII, re-built in the 18th century, and then altered again in the 19th century under Charles X. The château has a long history and the first written record – dating from 1536 – already refers to it as a wine estate.
