Domaine de la Bergerie

In the Guégniard family wine growing has continued for 7 generations, even from mother to son or from father to daughter.
Yves' grandmother bought the estate La Bergerie in the 1964 so that she could extend her vineyard inheritance.
She, immediately after, bestowed it to her daughter "Marie-Agnes" in the same year. It was in 1979 that Yves joined his parents.
From then onward, Yves and Marie-Annick, his wife, have progressively increased their vineyard and their appellations.
It is thus, in the middle of the "Coteaux du Layon", in the excellent region of Anjou one will find today the Bergerie which extends to 36 hectares (88.96 acres)


Our philosophy

"Respecting authenticity and the expression of terroir"

We chose to explore all the facets of 'chenin' and 'cabernet' through a wide range of appellation, all benefiting from a particular terroir. In order to achieve this we adapt to a strategic cultivation taking into account the nature of the soil (de-grassing and working the land).

Because "Quality" is our master word, we have to maintain regularity in the excellence of our wines.
In order to attain to our goals, we work rigorously on the vineyards: leaf removal, green harvest, little yields, severe sorting during harvest time…
Finally every parcel of land is turned to wine and then produced separately to maintain better the "authenticity and the expression of terroir"
