Château de Quinçay - Loire Valley wines
Château de Quinçay is a family vineyard located on the southern hillsides of the Cher river, at Meusnes. Winemakers from father to son, the Cadart family has been working for five generations to produce amazing wines from their 30-hectare vineyard. Its soils are ideal for the vines and very rich in flint - which used to be extracted to make gunflints for rifles and pistols - and that brings a flinty smoky notes to wine.
Environmental conservation has always been important at the estate and they have been managing the vineyard using sustainable farming practices for over two decades. The estate is Terra Vitis certified since 2000: this label guarantees the production of high quality wines from sustainable farming methods, preserving soils and vines from chemical products. Terra Vitis is the signature of French winemakers who respect their heritage and nature.
The estate produces wines from all local grapes: Gamay, Côt (aka Malbec), Pinot Noir or Cabernet Franc for the reds, Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc for the whites. We've found their range very consistent and after a very enjoyable tasting, we've selected their best cuvées for our members. All the wines here have been tasted and approved by Your Sommelier for their quality and value!
