Caves du Val De France
Caves du Val de France has been created in order to blend the wines coming from the Feray Family vineyards. Thus we created the brand Jovly vouvray. That also allow to blend the base wine to to some sparkling wines as well as to blend somes cabernet franc and chenin Blanc to do our Cremant de Loire rose.
Located in the heart of the Cheverny designation, Domaine Maison stretches over 73 hectares with 60% of white vines (Sauvignon, Chardonnay), and 40% red vines (Pinot noir, Gamay). The vines are managed with maximum respect of the terroirs and the environment with only one goal, get the best grape by controlling yield, leaf stripping, high trellising height. The plots are perfectly exposed. They benefit from the best weather conditions thanks to their geographical location between two rivers : the Loire and the Cher.
