About
Domaine des Emois

Domaine des Emois is one of the few organically certified Sancerre producers. Their vineyards cover almost six hectares on the steep slopes of Amigny, a small hamlet of Sancerre.

Introducing Domaine des Emois

Domaine des Emois vineyard has a high vantage point relative to the entire Sancerre appellation, exposing the vines to the sun and wind. The caillottes soil is composed of limestone-rich, clay soils with small pebbles. The Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are farmed and harvested in small plots allowing for a focused viticultural strategy that ensures clean fruit and wines marked by freshness and finesse.

In 2012, the vineyards came under the stewardship of the Mellot family, a generational fixture in the Loire. Organic practices were employed from the very start and certification was achieved in 2015. The vineyard is free of synthetic molecules and only natural, raw materials are used for cultivation. Holistic methods are employed for pest control eliminating the need for pesticides as well. The vineyard is worked with the goal of promoting the life of the soil so as to ensure the resilience of the natural ecosystem.
