The People

Michel & Silviane

Today, Domaine de Veilloux is owned by Michel and Silviane Quenioux working in the vineyards.

"We have replaced chemical weed-killing by working the soil to improve the vines’ rooting systems and microbe life. In order to preserve the expression of the terroir, we make wine without adjunction of yeast and we limit the use of sulphites."

The Place

France, Loire

The soils are mainly made of clay but with slight differences according to the plot considered (clay with sand or clay with flint). The winemaking is respectful of the fruit and the ageing is usually long, thus producing complex wines that truly reflect the terroir of the Cheverny appellation.
