Welcom to the estate of Four à Chaux in Thoré la Rochette. Loire
Once upon a time there was the fabulous tale of wine-growers, the tale of the Norguet Family
that for 7 generations have operated their Domaine du Four à Chaux in the heart of Le Vendômois.
Sylvie and Dominique, who have inherited this passion, cordially invite you to visit their estate
with its lime kiln and its vines and finish your tour with a sampling of their wines in troglodytic cellars two centuries old.
The name of the estate comes from the kiln dating back to 1767, which was used to convert limestone into lime.
The nearby vines have been planted in limey soils covering 3 hectares of vineyards,
and the remaining 26 ha of vines are planted in flint-clay soils.
White, Grey, Red... a full range of AOC Coteaux du Vendômois and local wines (VDQD) is on sale in the shop.
