Stop At: Chateau du Petit Thouars, La Chaussee, 37500 Saint-Germain-sur-Vienne, Chinon France
Discover the unique history of the Château du Petit Thouars, a family-owned castle built in 1423 by the Dukes of Thouars. Owned by the Aubert du Petit Thouars family since 1636, the castle has been passed from father-to-son in a direct line, with a vineyard in existence on the property for hundreds of years.
Visitors will visit Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc vines and learn about vineyard practices in the Chinon appellation.
A leisurely stroll will take you to our troglodyte caves where our wines are vinified and aged on-site. You will be walked through French wine vinification practices.
Returning to the château you will taste our range of wines.
After the tasting you will be brought to a special location on the estate to enjoy your private countryside lunch (salads, cheeses, deli meats, and a special local dessert: the winemaker's tart) on a beautifully dressed table with a bottle of wine to enjoy.
