Vineyards of Center-Loire, the Coteaux du Giennois are located on the banks of the Royal River, in the departments of Loiret and Nièvre. Coming from a long history, the Coteaux du Giennois acquired the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée in 1998.
White wines give beautiful expressions of Sauvignon. The reds, a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay, are fine and fruity. The rosés express aromas of vine peaches.
It is with passion for working the land and the vines that Emmanuel CHARRIER created the Domaine de l'Epineau in 2004. Installed on the site of the family farm, it is through the purchase and rental of different plots that have been completely reworked that the development of the Estate continues. All this is done with respect for the environment so that the terroir and the grapes give the best.

We are changing departments today, heading for Nièvre (58) at Domaine Langlois located in the village of Pougny. "Respect, preserve, safeguard the richness of our land" such are the words of Michel Langlois. It is with his family, with his wife Catherine and their three sons Pierre, Jean-Vincent and Valentin, that Michel Langlois runs his estate. With the watchwords "method, sincerity and eco-responsibility."

It was at the very beginning of the 2000s that Emile Balland embarked on the winegrowing adventure with enthusiasm and determination. Today, the vineyard has around 7 hectares of vines in the heart of the appellation, in the municipalities of Bonny sur Loire (45) and Beaulieu sur Loire (45), on either side of the Loire. In the communes of Amigny (18) and Bué (18), cradle of the Balland family, I also work 1 hectare in the Sancerre appellation.
