Domaine Sylvain Gaudron

Since about 1890, four generations of the Gaudron family have lived in Vernou, running a vineyard that covers 27 hectares (67 acres). About the two-thirds of the vines are at least thirty years old on average. All the vines grown in the Vouvray appellation area are of the Chenin variety, also known as Pineau de la Loire. A few still wine vintages are stored in oak casks for several months to give them their characteristic flavour.
