The Maison Vagneur Company, which was officially founded in 2007, is actually only the last chapter of a long history of farming work and attachment to the territory that has spanned several generations. In fact, after having grouped together excessively fragmented properties, work has been carried out to recover some vineyards in the Chantè area in Saint-Nicolas, the only ones in production in the entire municipal territory. The walls, old buildings and terraces that bear witness to a glorious past have been preserved.
They are cultivated about 7000 square meters of vineyards that allow the production of max. 2000 bottles of PDO wines. We consider it a jewel, set in a terroir that until 1900 was cultivated in its entirety and then was also completely abandoned.
This strip of land historically suited to viticulture must be cultivated with due respect for the rhythms of the land and the changing seasons.
