Our historie

The Romans first produced wine on the hills of Savennières. Throughout the Middle Ages, monasteries and the bourgeoisie of Angers appreciated the quality of these terroirs and exported to England and Holland the great wines they were producing, in exchange for wool or spices.

In 1495, the Lordship of the Vaults is mentioned with “vineyards, orchard and small garden.” Since that time, it has been owned by prominent families of Angers and its surroundings, among them the ship owning Walsh family, and the vineyard has continuously produced great wines. Inherited in the nineteenth century by the family of Napoleon’s biographer, the Comte de Las Cases, the Château des Vaults estate has remained in the hands of its descendants. Women with strong personalities: Marque du  Closel, Michèle Bazin de Jessey, and now her daughter Evelyne, Vicomtesse de Pontbriand.

The Château des Vaults, with its romantic park and its World heritage landscape, became in the twenty-first century one of the major references of the Savennières appellation and a renowned Wine cultural center that offers tours, themed walks, concerts, literary or poetic evenings, exhibitions, groups and individuals tastings and workshops. Some events like Made in Angers,  National Gardens Days in June, “Vines, Wines and hiking” event and Heritage Days in September are opportunities for open days with excellent cultural activities.

Since 2005, the Domaine du Closel – Château des Vaults has been qualified for sustainable development. This is in recognition of the work done in traceability, management of human resources, risk assessment, hygiene requirements and respect for the environment that has been done for many years. We work with the method of Natural Agriculture. The estate is also a wildlife LPO refuge for birds (League for the Protection of Birds) with 72 species of birds recorded. The wines are organic and biodynamic (certified by Ecocert and Demeter). The wines are constantly cited in Bettane and Desseauve, Best Wines of France Guide, Gault et Millau, Hachette, etc. and win gold or silver medals every year: Millésime Bio, French Ministry of Agriculture, International Wine Challenge and Decanter etc.

The Estate has been awarded the distinction of Cave d’Excellence des Pays de la Loire. We are certified Vignobles et Découvertes and Qualité Tourisme.
