It was in 1989 that the adventure of the Vignobles du Paradis began, with the ESAT les Chevaux Blancs planting from the 1st hectare to the Clos de la Niverdière. The following year the planting of vines continued, with the installation of a first winery on the Clos. The Vignobles du Paradis started with the plantation of 2 ha. Today the estate cultivates 35 hectares of AOC Chinon red and rosé and soon white.
The vineyard is located near Chinon, a small picturesque town of 9000 inhabitants, situated near the Loire River, and birthplace of Rabelais, a famous French philosopher and writer of the Renaissance. Terroir : Clay and sandy soils Everything is done (pruning, soil work, disbudding, etc.) to give the best quality grapes possible.
