Nestled on the meanders of the Loire, at the confluence of the Vienne, between Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil and Chinon is the cradle of the Amirault & Grosbois families. A family of winegrowers for 6 generations, where the story begins. It was in 2008 that Xavier Amirault and Nicolas Grosbois, founders, decided to pool their know-how to offer their vision of wine: wines that respect the work of men and women, of the land and which express their terroir.
A vision born from their experiences and from their quest for adventure.
Xavier, based for 12 years in New York and San Francisco as North America manager.
This also led them to meet other winemakers to identify the best terroirs in France in order to offer a range of wines of surprising freshness.
Representing our winegrowing heritage is the mission of the Amirault-Grosbois family. To preserve the Cabernet Franc, the endemic grape variety of the Chinon, AOP Bourgueil, and AOP Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil appellations.
In 2016, after a period of frost, we looked to the South-West and began a partnership with an equally committed winemaker in the appellation of Gaillac, Côte du Tarn & premières côtes.
Here is the beginning of our adventure of offering French wines in a Loire style and respecting the indigenous grape varieties, notably Duras and Braucol (Fer Servadou) for the reds and Colombard, Mauzac for the whites.
The Amirault-Grosbois family, it’s five people devoted to their environment: the work in the vineyard, the search for a balance between plant material and human interaction, the diversity of cultures, the search for a fair wine that reflects place.
