In 1972 André Bonneau and his wife created Domaine de la
Bonnelière on the site of the "Caveau St Vincent" with just a few
hectares of vine. Anthony and Cédric Bonneau represent the fifth
generation of vine growers in this family.
Fuelled by their passion for wine the joined the business in
2000 and the Domaine is now an impressive 40 hectares. All of the
work in the vineyard is carried out with quality in mind but not at
the expense of the environment which their take great to protect.
Using "Méthode Raisonnée" to ensure only the very minimum of
treatments are used.
The rows between vines are grassed over to ensure protection of
the soil and nutrients. In the winery the aim is let the fruit
express the "Terroir" and so use of SO2 is kept to a minimum and
native yeasts are used where possible. The winery is run with
protection of the environment and best interests of the people in
