Located in the heart of the Savennières appellation in Anjou, Château d'Epiré is a family estate that has been passed down from father to son for 5 generations. Savennières is a schist terroir that gives the chenin an exceptional minerality. On an area of 11 hectares located on the slopes of the Loire, the harvest is manual in 3 to 4 passages, the wines are then vinified in an old Romanesque church from the 12th century. We mainly produce dry white wines but also a sweet wine that reminds us of the Savennières of yesteryear.

Our story

My great-great-grandfather moved to Epiré in 1875 where he began to work the vines. His son then transformed the old village church into a cellar, and since generations have succeeded each other while continuing to develop the estate. I grew up in the middle of the estate's vineyards, I fished in the Loire my first pike, and I loved crossing this river in the summer when the sandbanks made their appearances. It is this love for the family and the terroir that pushed me to leave my position as a manager in supermarkets to live my passion for wine. I took the opportunity of a year to go and harvest in different places, especially in New Zealand. Despite the beauty of the country, the desire to return and get to work was too strong.

Other little stories

When my great-great-great-grandfather took over the Epiré estate in 1875, did he suspect that one of his grandsons would take over 140 years later? Honestly, it is difficult for me to answer them, but in any case it didn't take me long to choose between my job as a department manager in supermarkets and the vineyards of Savennières.
