Domaine de la Renne
In 1980, Guy Lévêque took over the family farm founded around 1900 by his grandparents. Back then the land had only 10 acres (4 hectares) of vines, and the wine was made in the cellar of his house. Over the years, the resurrection of plots enabled him to build a 2625 ft2 (800 m2) vat house in 1992. In 2009, the estate covered 161 acres (65 hectares) of vines.
That same year, his children joined the company and construction of a new vat house began. In 2012 we were farming 198 acres (80 hectares) of vineyards, diverse in terms of both their grapes and terroir (clay and limestone, clay and sand, clay and silica), enabling us to produce a varied range of wines: red, rosé, white, the sparkling Fines Bulles de Touraine and medium-sweet white wines made from an overripe harvest.
