After having worked in the export and promotion of wine in France and then in Dubai, Eric Santier decided to become a winemaker. After training in Bordeaux and a few rich experiences with other winemakers, he took over Domaine Dozon.

Our story

Eric's story is the story of a globetrotter from Chinon who came back to his roots to make real wines, Loire wines! After having worked in the export and promotion of wine in France and then in Dubai, Eric Santier decided to become a winemaker in his forties. After a training in Bordeaux and some rich experiences with other winemakers, he took over the Domaine Dozon.


The 14 hectares of the estate are located in the Saut au Loup area in Ligré, on the left bank of the Vienne River, in the Chinon AOC. Spread over two types of soils, clay-siliceous at the top of the slopes, clay-limestone at the bottom of the slopes, the vineyard of a single block is exposed to the south, south-east. Owned by the DOZON family for 5 generations, the estate was taken over in 2013 by Eric Santier.

Other little stories

"The takeover of this domain represents for me a double return to the roots. After having lived successively in Burgundy, the Var, Paris and Dubai, I am back in Chinon, my native city. But it is also a return to values that are essential to me: respect for the earth. The wine grower's profession is a truly complete profession that requires technique, working the land, selling and communicating."
