Domaine du Prieuré, Jean-Marc Gallou
 
Valaire, Loire Valley, France
   
Jean-Marc comes from a long line of wine-growers and producers: his winegrowing business has been in the family since 1720.
To this day, Jean-Marc makes his wines in the traditional manner of his ancestors, entirely by hand.

Jean-Marc tends his vines with the greatest respect for the soil, the insects, flora and fauna.
When the wines are ready, they are bottled straight from the cuve to preserve the authentic flavours of the fruit and the soil.

9 hectares of vines. The white grapes are mainly Sauvignon Blanc, with some Arbois and Chardonnay. The reds are mainly Gamay, Cabernet and Côt. 
Jean-Marc and Amanda’s vineyard is situated in the heart of the gorgeous Loire Valley 15 kms down river from Blois, just behind the stunning château of Chaumont sur Loire. The vineyard and accompanying shop at Domaine Du Prieuré are open to visitors most days. If you are interested in visiting the area, Amanda’s Wines can recommend this B&B:
