Manoir de la Tête Rouge" is located on one of Saumur's finest clay-limestone terroirs. Guillaume Reynourad took over the running of the estate in 1995, and decided to focus his vineyard work on integrated farming practices. He subsequently adopted the principles of organic farming and obtained eco-certification in 1998. Choosing to take his approach a step further, he opted for viticulture based on the principles of biodynamic agriculture (which sees the vine as part of a larger ecosystem). He obtained Biodyvin certification in 2010. In the cellar, Guillaume uses gentle winemaking methods that emotionally convey the particularities of his terroirs.

Our story

Guillaume spared no effort in restoring the vineyard to health and obtaining the certifying labels. When he took over the vineyard, the soil had not been worked for over 30 years and was therefore very hard. The vines weren't very cooperative either, and couldn't bear to have their superficial roots cut at first. Today, thanks to Guillaume's hard work, the vineyard yields are regular and the soil is in great shape. He has opted for natural grassing between the rows, taking care to mow only once before the harvest to allow the species to develop and preserve the balance of the terroir. Soil ploughing, de-budding, de-sucking and manual harvesting are all part of the process to obtain top-quality wines. IN 2015, Guillaume breathed new life into his estate by planting Pineau d'Aunis and Grolleau Gris, rare and forgotten grape varieties native to the Saumur region.

Other little stories

The estate is EcoCert and Biodyvin certified, and is a member of the Renaissance des Appellations group. "My philosophy is resolutely at odds with productivist and standardized oenology. "My wines are, above all, the expression and reflection of my terroirs." G. Reynouard
