About the winery: Domaine Vincent Pinard is located in Bue, at the heart of the Sancerre region. Their way of working at this centuries-old family estate is very traditional. The work philosophy takes a natural, organic approach and respects the terroirs and consequently the environment.
The estates 17 hectares are mainly located on the hills of Bue, a famed winegrowing village that boasts limestone and clay-limestone terroirs. They do not use any herbicides, insecticides or anti-rot treatments, etc.
Most of the work in the vineyards is done by hand (including harvesting).
