Château de Chaintres is a 17th century nobleman's manor. Composed of approximately 50 acres of vineyards, this famous "Clos" is unique in this appellation. It was chosen by the Oratorien monks in the 17th century because of its exceptional terroir and exposure.
Since 1938, The de Tigny family, franco-american owners for the last three generations, is dedicated to producing a delicate and unique Saumur Champigny.
After being one of the first vineyards to adopt organic and ecological cultivation in 2004, it has turned to organic certified agriculture since 2010.
