About
Discover the unique history of the Château du Petit Thouars, a family-owned castle built in 1423 by the Dukes of Thouars. Owned by the Aubert du Petit Thouars family since 1636, the castle has been passed from father-to-son in a direct line, with a vineyard in existence on the property for hundreds of years. Visitors will visit Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc vines and learn about vineyard practices in the Chinon appellation. A leisurely stroll will take you to our troglodyte caves where our wines are vinified and aged on-site. You will be walked through French wine vinification practices. Returning to the château you will taste our range of wines, paired with delicious local specialties.

Great Experience
Sep 2019
I went there with my family and Mariela gave us the Tour through the vineyards and then through the cellar. She was great with all the explanations and was a tremendous source of knowledge, we learned a lot of things from the grapes to the wine making that had no even idea. It's a great tour as it's very personalized way better than guided tours for groups and Mariela is the best host ever. To finalize we went to the taste of not only the great wine but also some cheese which were amazing. 100% recomended

Surprising flavors!
Aug 2019 • Friends
We received a good explanation on our English speaking tour, by the Canadian wife of the son of the owner of the chateau. The explanation was about the vineyards (where we went to take a look) and the production process.

Do expect a Château in its old state where there is still a lot of work to do.

If you go for wine that is grown with passion and in the most organic way possible, this is the place to be for you. We liked the flavors. We could not resist buying some bottles.
