Château de Bréze

Château de Brézé


The vineyard was created in the 15th century. Although the region is now known for its red wines, it is to the white that it owed its reputation and part of its wealth for a long time. The historic wines of Château de Brézé were sung and praised in the 15th century by the good King René, poet. The Brézé vineyard also pleased Joachim du Bellay who wrote about it a century later: "its nectar seasons us, nectar gives it to us, my sweet Brézien vineyard." Group or individual tasting. Tasting of 3 wines of your choice depending on the availability of vintages. More info:

Philippe Porché

As soon as Philippe Porché acquired his first vines in Parnay in 2004, the very young Domaine de Rocheville could prepare to vinify its first harvest. In addition to being an exceptional year, 2005 is therefore a key date in the history of Rocheville, that of its very first vintage!

Domaine de la Paleine


Laurence & Marc Vincent, lovers of the Loire, today preside over the destiny of the property.

Patrick Nivelleau vinifies the different cuvées of the Domaine.

The Estate moved from an organic approach to biodynamic certification under the Demeter label in 2017. Under the estate, 1.5 km of galleries are dug into the Tuffeau. There, at 12°C, more than 100,000 bottles of vintages and different Saumur appellations flourish quietly, sheltered from the light.

Tasting possible at the estate or at the Loge de Vigne, in a plot in the middle of the vines.
