We are very pleased to offer our wines direct from the winery to you!
The Château du Hureau is located in the small town of Dampierre sur Loire, about four miles east of Saumur and 15 miles west of Chinon. Philippe Vatan was thrust into the limelight at the Château du Hureau by the tragic and untimely death of his brother in 1987. It is a testament to his fortitude and skills as vigneron that he has made such a success of this domaine, now considered one of the top in the appellation. A group of vineyards spread over seventeen separate plots of young and old vines (some are 70 years old) produce the regular Saumur Champigny bottling. The suppression of the secondary buds in the spring, the summertime crop-thinning, strict selection during the picking, long fermentations (25 to 30 days) and the aging lasting from 10 to 20 months in the tuffeau cellars, all contribute to the elaboration of a red wine which is rich, smooth and supple on your palate.
All of our wines offered here have been properly imported, carefully handled, and are available for immediate shipment directly from our U.S. stocks. We hope you enjoy our wines!
