Château des Couldraies

Who are we

Château des Couldraies is located in the Loire Valley, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. The estate is located 40 km from Tours and 2 km from the world-famous Chenonceau Castle. The vineyard’s ideal southern exposure close to the Cher, a tributary of the Loire, ensures that winemaking has been very successful here for centuries. The soil consists of sandy loam soil, lime as well as lots of flint on the surface which ensures optimal water permeability. Top quality guaranteed! The 10-hectare vineyard is divided between about 60% red and 40% white grape varieties. The classic red grapes are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec (also called Côt here), Gamay, Grolleau and Pinot Noir complemented by Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc for the white varieties. Planting density is 6667 vines per hectare and several plots are between 50 and 100 years old. This allows us to make very concentrated terroir wines and you can taste this immediately in the wine glass.
