At the heart of the Sancerre designation, the Domaine de la Garenne offers authentic wines, produced in accordance with the terroir: white, red and rosé wines, regularly honored by professionals, and recommended by a demanding and loyal clientele.

At the Domaine de la Garenne, Fabienne and Benoit welcome you to taste all of their cuvées and discover with them the shared pleasure of an inimitable wine.

History

The Domaine de la Garenne is primarily a family affair. Jean-Louis Reverdy harvested the first vines in 1820.

In the 60s, production increased. From then on, the domain kept being modernized: in the 70s, Dominique and Bernard-Noël Reverdy built the wine warehouses and the farm buildings.

In 2008 their daughter Fabienne and her husband Benoit Godon took control of the Domaine de la Garenne. Today it includes 12 hectares in the Sancerre designation. Fabienne and Benoit produce white, red and rosé wines, many of which received awards.

The Terroir

There are three types of soils in the Sancerre region: clay-limestone marl, hard or soft limestone and Clay-with-Flints. Each soil brings its characteristics to the vine.

The Domaine de la Garenne farms in environmental friendly growing plots distributed among these three types of soils with a predominance of hard or soft limestone. Respect for the authenticity of terroirs allows the expression of unique, complex and endearing wines.

White wines are produced from Sauvignon grape variety, while red and rosé wines come from Pinot Noir. You can discover several wines at the Domaine de la Garenne in the company of the owners to enjoy the most beautiful expression of the terroirs of Sancerre.
