COTEAUX DU VENDÔMOIS

Production Region

Did you know ?

There is a reference to the Coteaux du Vendômois vineyards as early as the 10th century, in a Deed of Endowment which mentions the presence of vines at Villedieu. Henri IV is said to have thought highly of these wines,  articularly those from the Domaine de Prépatour in Naveil. But it was only in the 18th century that winegrowing in the  endôme began in earnest.
