Manoir de la Tete Rouge

Basic Info

Le Manoir de la Tête Rouge was built in 1649 at the foot of the hill of Le Puy Notre Dame. This maison is an important piece of the history in this small village and the vineyard is dwarfed by a majestic eleventh century Collegiate Church. Guillaume Reynouard purchased this property in 1995. The vines are organically grown, yielding 42hl/ha, and have been eco-certified since 1998. They use no synthetic chemicals, to respect and protect the ecosystems in each of their plots, which includes naturally grown grass between the rows of vines. Famille Reynouard produces some of the most honest wines in Saumur from their estate grown Cabernet Franc, Pineau d’Aunis and Chenin Blanc.
