THE COMPANY

Located near Tours, in the famous valley of the Loire castles, the Domaine de la Roulétiere is led with great passion by the Gilet family, among the first to believe in sparkling wines, as much as they gave life to the first cuvée in 1959. The vineyards extends over stony slopes on tufaceous substrate in small confluent valleys. The Domaine has a large cellar, on two levels, dug for 800 meters of tunnels: here both still wines and bubbles of Vouvray matures. Certified in Organic Agriculture and conducted in a respectful way, the Domaine, with its fine and deep wines, perfectly represents the terroir of Vouvray.
