La Chapinière vineyards

Le Domaine de la Chapinière. Florence Veilex is a new generation winemaker since 2003 and has flung herself wholeheartedly into the “Terra Vitis” label for AOC Touraine. The Hachette Guide has singled out a Voltaire blended vintage, a wine to put down made with côt, a grape from the Lot. The Côt Garnon is the pride of the estate, a powerful, round wine with flavours of violet. Florence organises ‘from vine to wine’ tours throughout July and August, together with hand grape-harvesting weekends with meals included. Book in advance.
