Since about 1890, four generations of the Gaudron family have lived and cultivated vines in Vernou, running a vineyard that covers 25 hectarese. The Domain is built on a limestone-clay soil which rests on a sub-layer of tuffeau, the elegant stone used to build the Chateaux for which the region is so renowned.
The vines were purchased in 2012, stretching over 1.2 hectares and tended to using organic practices. The vineyards are situated on a hillside on the heights of Vernou in Brenne. The plot is composed of clayey limestone soil and vines of on average 40 years old.
