Vignoble Gibault

Région : Loire Valley
Our Story

Set in the heart of the Loire valley our vineyard is at the crossroads of three ancient provinces and benefits from two AOP’s: Valençay and Touraine. Set on terraces overlooking the ancient valleys of the Cher rivers our vines grow on two kinds of very special soil (flint clays and shell clays). We are respectful of the environment and our wines are made using modern techniques such as temperature control. Our wines are well structured, aromatic and elegant.
