The Merieau estate is located on the banks of the Cher river, in Saint-Julien de Chédon. Between Montirchard and Blois, we cultivate about 35 hectares of vines. They are at ease on their hillsides and benefit from ideal sunshine with a South-South-East exposure. The oldest of our vines are 80 years old and we cultivate various grape varieties such as Gamay, Menu Pineau, Chardonnay, Arbois and Cabernet. This allows us to offer 15 vintages to Loire wine lovers in red, rosé, white and sparkling wines. Our cellar is so old that we have never managed to date it! Our cellar is so old that we have never been able to date it! We age our most precious juices in oak barrels. It is also the place where we welcome visitors for a tasting session.
At the end of the second world war, Georgina found herself a widow. It was on her initiative that the estate was created and, with the help of her daughter Paulette and her husband Jean, she developed the winery, its cultivation and sales. Their son, Jacky, in turn took over the reins of the estate and began a quest for fame, which he succeeded in achieving thanks to wines of ever-increasing quality and his love for the land. All this would not have been possible without his commitment to restructure the estate as we know it today. In the 2000s, Jean-François graduated from his studies in Bordeaux and went to work in the South African vineyard. He then moved to the family estate and rediscovered the terroirs of his native land. He works the soil by ploughing, harvesting by hand and pruning severely to give a second life to the vine. He still manages the 35 hectares on the hillsides using traditional methods of old-fashioned winemaking. He is aware of the impact of the products used to treat the vines and manages his vineyard in a reasoned manner.
At the estate, you will have the opportunity to taste a cuvée... like no other! Indeed, the bottle named "Georgina Century" honours the one who created the estate. This sweet wine is different from its cousins in Touraine: it is made without added suffering. Don't be surprised if you don't have the chance to taste it, this wine is only produced in years when the harvest is exceptional and allows you to have a subtle and aromatic wine.
