The Story

Benoit and Elizabeth Jardin who only cultivate Chenin Blanc and its parent variety, Pineau d’Aunis.

Pineau d’Aunis, an ancient variety of the Loire Valley. “Garance” is a powdered form of Alizari, a root that produces a red dye and refers to the vibrancy of color the grape provides.

Seven hectares planted throughout southern-facing slopes of Jasnieres and Ruille sur Loire in sandy-clay loam with flint and quartz.

This husband and wife team endeavor to show two of their region’s varieties in their happiest, healthiest capacities.
