Discover the Château du Petit Thouars:

Georges Aubert, a gentleman from Poitou in the service of the Cardinal de Richelieu, became the first lord of Petit Thouars when he bought the castle and vineyard on the advice of Richelieu in 1634. Since then, the Château du Petit Thouars was continuously transmitted from generation to generation.
True to their ancestors, free spirits, adventurous, talented scientists and servants of the state, the latest generations of the family du Petit Thouars, Yves and Marguerite du Petit Thouars and their children Sebastian and Amelie show as much entrepreneurship at the dawn of the third millennium. Former Executive Director of Baccarat Crystal Factory, Yves restarted the exploitation of the vineyard in 1975 and thanks to the passionate work conducted with his wife, the wines of Château du Petit Thouars are awarded and appreciated in Europe and in the world, from the United States to China. Their son Sebastian has made a career in the music industry until 2009 before taking care of the business development and communication of the vineyard.

We want to show the history of our ancestors, the richness of the terroir and the match between the ground and the Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc grapes. Our wines are elaborated by Michel Pinard, cellar master whose long experience, forged especially at Charles Joguet's estate guarantees the best expression of these varieties on our clay-limestone plateau.

It was an amazing experience. The wine was delicious, the vineyards and cellars were incredible. I loved the lunch and the host, Sebastian, has a great knowledge of an incredibly interesting family history. He was very affable and down to earth! The whole experience was fantastic and well worth the modest expense.

The visit is really nice, you can walk through the vineyards and learn a bit the difference of the grapes and wines produced here. The wine tasting is also great, as you can taste 8 different types of wines. The only issue was that instead of starting at 17 we have a small delay of 30', so it's better for you not to be in a tight scheduled. Apart from that, everything was super great! I highly recommend the visit.
