« Le Caveau de la Tour Villard » (The Cellar of the « Tour Villard »)
A passion, a tradition…..
The wine area of Chignin, located 10 kms south of Chambery, is characterised by its open limestone-clay slopes as well as its magnificent towers dating from the Middle Ages.
The family Quénard (also known as Cardin) has cultivated vines here for many years.
The domaine consists of 15 hectares which stretch to the foot of the towers of the ancient fortress.
Jean-François Quénard is inspired by the traditional methods passed through the generations. These are based on respect for the terroir, with traditional cultivation and vinification methods aided by modern techniques.
Each year the domaine’s wines win many medals and are mentioned in the top guides.
