When Michel Vigneau married Mlle Chevreau, the Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau was created uniting two properties and two families which have been making wine since 1875. Today, they and their sons have 28 hectares of vines, and they produce an impressive array of still, sparkling, sec, demi-sec and moelleux wines.
