The project: the fruit of our passion

  • The production of excellent AOC Chinon : red, rosé, white – The pursuit of excellence
  • Oenological seminars – The spirit of sharing
    The winery has been modernised and refurbished allowing us to accommodate our guests comfortably when they arrive to discover our wines and the region for our oenological seminars
  • Truffle production – a taste of distinction
    we are currently developing our 2 hectares of truffle oaks.

The « terroir » the secret of our success

The domain Demoiselles de Pallus is situated in Indre and Loire, in Cravant les Coteaux, close to Chinon. Way back in Roman times vines were already being cultivated in the region. The “terroir” , made up of mainly of clay limestone and gravel soil, is famous for producing excellent AOC Chinon wines giving it a characteristic depth of flavour.

The domain is predominantly planted with “old” vines which produce subtle, harmonious wines
Our two main grape varieties are Cabernet Franc (red and rose wines) and Chenin (white wine) an emblematic variety of the Loire valley.
