A vineyard in the heart of Anjou...
In an ancestral place, the Domaine de la Bougrie covers 65 hectares of vines.
Since 2008, this family vineyard has been the subject of major restructuring (annual planting, creation of a low energy cellar, renewal of equipment : harvesting machine, sorting table, press, stainless steel tanks, filtration system, acquisition of barrels ...) in order to sustainably develop its wines in excellence. The complete mastery of production by a qualified, rigorous and attentive team including every aspect of the manufacturing process, has allowed Domaine de La Bougrie to gain recognition for its wines by many distinctions in France and abroad.
Chenin, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grolleau and Pinot Noir are grown on our vineyard to offer a complete range of wines.
A reasoned culture ...
The objective of our field is to move towards viticulture increasingly respectful of nature and its biodiversity; Already, we have started to reduce treatments and decided to go further than classical reasoned cultivation.
In view of our climate Angevin subjected to an oceanic influence of the Atlantic facade, humidity remains very present in our region which, by its excess, could affect the vegetative cycle of the vine. However, a continental influence drying our vineyards during certain months and the significant progress made in terms of treatment efficiency allow us to be very optimistic.
"Independent winemaker, authentic wines and personalities" ...
The Domaine de La Bougrie is listed as an independent winemaker.
The Vigneron Indépendant charter commits the vine grower from vineyard plantation to the final sale of his wines:
He cultivates his vineyard and respects his soil.
He makes his own wine in his cellar.
He sells his wine by sharing his passion.
