The Chateau de Chaintres is a 17th century nobleman's manor of great charm, situated between the Chateau de Saumur and the Abbey of Fontevraud on the well known "Route du Vin".

Weathered by the centuries, the Chateau, surrounded by its vineyards and its white limestone walls (its famous"clos"), sits in a calm setting of gardens and trees.

Composed of approximately 50 acres of vineyards, this famous "Clos" is unique in this appellation. It was chosen by the Oratorien monks in the 17th century because of its exceptional terroir and exposure.

All of their wines are now certified organic since the 2013 vintage.
