The domain of Touraine
Established over 30 years ago by Pascal Avril, the Domaine de Touraine is the southernmost vineyard in the land of Rabelais.
Today it spreads on 15 hectares of vines on the banks of the Vienne river, divided into 2 appellations: A.O.C Touraine and A.O.C Chinon, bearing 2 types of vines: the Cabernet Franc for the red and rosé wines and the Chenin for the white wine.
Observation has convinced us that the natural balance of the vines is essential to the quality of our wines. We accompany each vineyard according to its specific needs and strive to ensure that our vines benefit from an abundant biodiversity. After natural fermentation, and bottling, our wines are raised for several months in tufa stone cellars. This ensures they conserve their essential qualities and flavour, pure and vital, reflecting the soil from which they have drawn their character.
