The vineyards of the Château du Breuil have been operating since 1822 in this amazing section of the Loire formed by the River Layon valley. Even in the garden of Anjou, the Château du Breuil is the guardian of an exceptional terroir. After years in the custodianship of the Robin Morgat family, winemaker Marc Morgat sold the Château and its estate to Michel Petitbois in 2006. Michel has subsequently invested heavily in the vineyard and into winemaking facilities on the estate to underpin a new focus on quality which is now paying enormous dividends.
Under winemaker David Vigan the reinvigorated vineyard has been moving all its production back to organic methods and to a more natural management approach which is heading towards the biodynamic philosophy. Of the 30 hectares (75 acres) of vines 55% are Chenin, 33% Cabernet, 8% Grolleau and 2% Sauvignon and Chardonnay respectively.
