The vineyard’s origins can be traced back to the Capetians, as witnessed by a document dating from around 1040. Following the French Revolution, the property was divided into 250 parcels. It took 70 years of perseverance and negotiation to bring it back to a sole ownership under the direction of the Baron de Ladoucette.
Baron Patrick de Ladoucette produces outstanding Loire Valley wines under the de Ladoucette, Marc Bredif, La Poussie, Regnard and Baron Patrick labels. Baron Patrick’s philosophy and policy is to bring out the quintessence in the wines from well-defined vineyards.
