About the winery:
Château Yvonne sits in the village of Parnay in the appellation Saumur-Champigny. Surrounded by exceptional terroir and talented vignerons, Château Yvonne certainly does not sit alone but it is the story of Château Yvonne which separates them from their neighbors.
The domaine dates back to the 16th century but it wasn’t until 1813 when the domaine began producing wine. In 1997, Yvonne et Jean-François Lamunière decided to recreate the abandoned vineyard with the help of Françoise Foucault of Clos Rougeard. Twenty years later, in 2007, Mathieu Vallée took over and decided to keep the name Château Yvonne in hommage to the incredible work done by the previous owners. Mathieu has managed to improve the quality of the wines by reducing the amount of new oak used and converting all farming to biodynamic. The vineyards have been farmed organically since 1997 and biodynamically since 2012.
