The Neveu family’s roots in the Loire Valley are nothing short of impressive. Local archives show Jean Neveu lived in the village of Verdigny (where the family still resides) as early as the 12th century, and they already ran an agricultural estate in 1641. Grapevines made up part of the property in the 19th century, but were destroyed by phylloxera. It wasn’t until after WWII that winegrowing regained its place at the domaine. It was Roger Neveu, father to current owners, brothers Éric and Jean-Philippe, who during the 1970s brought the domaine into its contemporary incarnation. The family tradition has already added another generation as both Éric and Jean-Philippe’s sons have started helping out in the vineyards and cellar.
