ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Domaine du Saut au Loup is located south of Chinon, on the left bank of the Vienne. Originally a traditional livestock and produce farm, the property turned to viticulture with the acquisition of 5 hectares within the renowned Clos du Saut au Loup in the early 20th century. Eric Santier, a Chinon native, purchased the domaine in 2010 from Laure Dozon, after apprenticing with the esteemed Domaine Baudry. The winery was renovated while the work in the vineyards began the conversion to organic viticulture. The entire domaine covers 24 hectares and the majority of the vines (over 70%) are more than 35-years-old.
