The "Domaine de la Tête Rouge" is located on one of the best clay-limestone terroirs in Saumur. Guillaume Reynourad took over the estate in 1995 and decided to direct the work of the vine by following the practices of sustainable agriculture. He then adopted the principles of organic farming and obtained an eco-certification in 1998. Biodynamics is above all a "peasant common sense", which takes into account the astral influences and the rhythms of nature. Although it often appears young to the general public, it should be noted that its fundamental principles were defined in 1924 by the philosopher Rudolf Steiner.

Our story

The philosophy of the estate is to bring life back into the soil. We believe that we must give the vine time to build itself, respecting the soil but also the plants. A bright vine allows the wine to express all the beautiful subtleties of the terroir, which evolves with each vintage. The practices are simple but effective to obtain wines of a high quality: ploughing the soil, disbudding, de-budding and manual harvesting for controlled yields.

Other little stories

The estate is certified EcoCert, Biodyvin and is part of the Renaissance group of Appellations
