We are the Ch'tis winegrowers of Saumur. We know about agriculture. We come from the North of France, and the family has moved from cereals and dairy farming to vine growing with unfailing enthusiasm. It was therefore in 2002 that Hervé and Christine embarked on the winegrower's adventure out of a passion for wine.
Located in the heart of the Saumur appellation, the vineyard of the Moulin de l'Horizon estate extends over some thirty hectares. Cabernet Franc is represented at 50%, Chenin Blanc at 30% and Chardonnay at 20%. All three colours are represented and bubbles make up 60% of the production.
Our clay-limestone soils, locally called tuffeau, retain winter precipitation. Thus our vines benefit from a regular water supply necessary for the perfect ripening of the grapes. This particularity is at the origin of our supple and fruity wines. All our wines are therefore cultivated, vinified, blended and bottled at the estate by us. The Moulin de l'Horizon style is unique: a bright fruitiness, a tasty palate and an elegant maturity, the result of a slow and gradual progression from the vineyard to the cellar.
The team at Moulin de l'Horizon is always very eager to welcome you! Winegrowers since 2002, Les Des Grousilliers perpetuate the tradition of the estate: to make Saumur wines to the best of what their terroirs can give them and a warm welcome. Come and visit us and taste our wines to delight your taste buds!
The mound of the Moulin de l'Horizon is one of the highest points in the Saumur region. With its 110m altitude, it protects our vineyard from the west winds. Our bubbles are entirely made in our cellars by us: The foaming is a real challenge, it is our passion and our pleasure to guarantee you exceptional vintages.
