In 2013, longtime friends Nicolas Grosbois and Philippe Mesnier purchased 12 hectares of vines in Azay-le-Rideau, an excellent, though relatively unknown terroir a few kilometers east of Chinon. They immediately began farming all the vines organically, and set about on an ambitious project to reintroduce the wines of Azay-le-Rideau. Most of the vineyards are located in Azay-le-Rideau on the lieu-dit “Hauts Baigneux”, with a small parcel in Saché. The wines of Domaine des Hauts Baigneux are all produced with natural yeast, and bottled with minimal intervention.
