The story of the GODEAU : a family of winemakers

Our ancestor, Auguste, settled here 145 years ago and began to dig the tuffeau (limestone), under the hill bearing his vines.

While the largest cellar was used for wine production, the others housed cows, horses and pigs. As for the extracted stones, they were used to build the house and the farm.

6 generations of our family have passed on the passion of our terroir and wines in these cellars.

Today, the domain classified as “High Environmental Value” represents 45 hectares of vines and it completely covers the hillsides linking the villages of Civray-de-Touraine and Chenonceaux.

With our 7 different grape varieties, we offer wine for all taste buds. Also, from the outskirts of the Château de Chenonceau, you will be able to observe our profession since we work the vines and the wines for our illustrious neighbour.
