Producer Profile

Domaine Le Facteur

At 33 years old, my journey into the world of wine began with a university course focused on the Sébastien Brunet estate, renowned for its organic practices in the AOC Vouvray, spanning from 2006 to 2008. It was during this time that I crossed paths with Mathieu Cosme, another advocate of organic viticulture. In 2013, seizing the opportunity, I joined forces with Mathieu to embark on a new winemaking venture at Domaine "Le Facteur". Over the years, I've reclaimed ownership of vineyards in the AOC Vouvray and expanded our footprint with 2 hectares adjacent to the AOC Côteau du Loir. Committed to organic principles, our cuvées are either certified or undergoing certification, with a steadfast aim of achieving 100% certification within the next three years. - Domaine Le Facteur

Where The Wines Come From

Vallée de la Loire

Nestled along the majestic Loire River, the Vallée de la Loire is a captivating region in France celebrated for its diverse array of natural wines. Here, winemakers embrace a philosophy of minimal intervention, allowing the grapes to express themselves authentically. From the crisp whites of Muscadet to the elegant reds of Chinon and the delicate rosés of Anjou, Vallée de la Loire's natural wines showcase the region's rich tapestry of terroirs and grape varieties. With a focus on sustainable farming practices and indigenous grape cultivation, these wines reflect the unique microclimates and limestone-rich soils of the valley, resulting in wines that are vibrant, nuanced, and full of character. Whether enjoyed alongside the region's famed goat cheeses or simply sipped while admiring the Loire's stunning landscapes, Vallée de la Loire's natural wines offer a true taste of the region's timeless charm and winemaking heritage.
