Château de Fosse-Sèche
This is the story of two Belgian brothers who grew up between Africa and Madagascar and became winemakers in the Saumurois region at the heart of the Loire Valley. Guillaume and Adrien Pire have been running the Château de Fosse-Sèche, certainly one of France’s oldest vineyards, since 2012. Here they cultivate 15 hectares of vines (Chenin, Cabernet Franc and a little Cabernet Sauvignon) at the heart of an ecosystem that is three times that size and includes forests, fallow land brimming with flowers and lakes. The land of Fosse-Sèche has few equals in the Saumurois region: it is pebbly (silex) and free of limestone. The vineyard is certified by Ecocert (organic) and Biodyvin (biodynamics).
