The soil of Domaine de Veilloux has had time to perfect its wine-growing ability, having laid there since the time of the French Revolution. Since 1994, the 25 hectares of organic vineyards have been owned by Michel and Sylviane Quenioux.
Domaine de Veillous grows Sauvignon, Menu Pineau, Chenin, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Côt, all of which are grown using sustainable, organic methods. As Michel explains, “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 estate was certified organic in 1998.
The estate also uses a gravity-flow wine system created by Michel, which relies on less energy and keeps down the chance of damage taking place during the winemaking process.
