The history of the Godeau: 6 generations of winemakers

More than a century ago, our ancestor "The father Auguste" dug the limestone, under the hill with his vineyard, to make his wine in privacy.

While the first and biggest cellar was devoted to the winemaking, the others were used for the cows, horses and pigs. This small farm and the house were enterely built with the extracted rocks. In these cellars, for six generations, the family’s passion for winegrowing has been handed down from father to son.

With a total of 45 hectares, our vines span over the entire hill between the town of Civray de Touraine and Chenonceaux. Also, you can see the first part of the vineyard near the entrance of the castle of Chenonceau given that we run their vineyard since 2008.

Alain, Joël et Christine GODEAU, brothers and sister members of the fifth generation, carry on the family tradition. In this decor, we are pleased to introduce our unique profession and make you discover our region otherwise.
