Chateau de Bonnezeaux's history dates back to the early 19th century. An estate that has been owned by the same family and had been producing wine for years and years until the decision was made to shut everything down and rent the vines out to other winemakers. The vines were essentially abandoned after that and for over 30 years not a single wine was produced from their vines. In 2012 the family decided to resurrect the brand and revive the once forgotten Chateau de Bonnezeaux.
Enter Guyonne Guyonne Saclier de la Bâtie. Guyonne has worked for two of the most exciting vignerons in the Loire Valley, namely Mark Angeli and Stephane Bernaudeau. Both masters of their craft producing some of the most sought after examples of Anjou Blanc, age worthy, refined, concentrated and powerful wines. She spent years working in the vineyard to revive their holdings and the first wines were made and released in 2016. A meteoric rise to the top followed as the world got to sample her wines and now we are lucky enough to taste them too!
