The domaine de la Semellerie stretches over 39 hectares of some of the best land, on the hillsides in the village of Cravant-les-Côteaux. The wines are ideally situated, facing southwards dominating the Vienne valley.
The vineyard is planted on clay silica soils with an ambundance of pebbles which ensure that the grapes reach a perfect maturity. They also guarantee perfect drainage and retain the heat of the sun during the day which is then absorbed by the grapes during the night. Chinon red wine is made from the grape variety called Cabernet Franc and is an Appellation d'Origine Controlée wine.
Our Wines are harvested and vinified with great care, respecting both traditional and modern techniques such as temperature control. Our unique aim is quality.
