More Information

This small Domaine is situated on the famous flinty slopes of the Vouvray region just to the north of the majestic Loire River.

It produces tiny quantities of exquisite white wine from very old Chenin Blanc vines. Their soils are packed with flint and silex – miniscule million year old sea fossils, dating back to a time when the sea covered this part of Northern France. The modern day soils now give perfect drainage in this cool wet region.

Domaine d’Orfeuilles was founded in 1947 by Paul Herivault. This vineyard is now cultivated by Bernard Herivault and his son.

They make every effort to proudly maintain the traditions in the cultivation and production of their vines. Resulting in clean yet unctuous viscous wines that show a plethora of qualities from fresh lime and fennel seeds to dry savory “flinty” notes.
