Presentation of the vineyard
Château de la Viaudière is situated not far from Champ-sur-Layon, about 30km south of the town of Angers in the Anjou region, right in the middle of the Loire Valley. This is where the famous sweet dessert wines Coteaux du Layon are produced, but also very good dry white wines and red wines. The castle of Viaudière was built in the 1500s and it's the family Gelineau which, generation after generation, has produced and commercialized the wines. Today it's Olivier Gelineau's son in law, Pierre-Antoine Giovannoni, who after having finished his wine studies, controls the winemaking since 2000. Agnès, Pierre-Antione's wife is responsible for the vineyard and the wine cellar.
