Chateau de Villeneuve


Family Chevallier

REGION: Loire Valley

Château de Villeneuve has been making wine since 1577. The winery was purchased in 1969 by the parents of the current owner Jean-Pierre Chevalier. He is a fourth-generation winemaker. The 28 hectares of vineyards are on a limestone terrace that overlooks the Loire River and produces AOC Saumur and AOC Saumur Champigny. The property has been certified organic since 2011. The vines grow in the chalky and clay soils that are typical in the region. He also uses biodynamic methods to enrich the soil quality. 

The use of sustainable methods ensures that the wines are a true expression of their terroir and origin as he continues to produce wines that are of exceptional quality. Once the grapes have been hand-harvested, they undergo a rigorous selection when brought to the cellar, to ensure that only the finest fruit is transformed into wine, which is made using minimal intervention.

Wine Region:

Loire Valley

Also known as Garden of France and Cradle of the French due to the slew of vineyards, vegetable farms, and fruit orchards in the region, the Loire Valley is right in the middle of the Loire river. The area is known for many kinds of fruity, crisp wines: rose, red, white, and sparkling. 

The region’s favorable climate – often a midpoint between the southern and northern French climes – it owes to the river, which is cool in springtime and possibly rainy during harvest season. Also, the temperatures of hot summers are similarly mitigated by the river and the breezes of the Atlantic Ocean. 

There are a number of wine regions similarly situated along the river Loire, such as the Atlantic’s Muscadet region, as well as Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre southeast of Orléans.
