Thierry Chardon Description
Husband and wife team, Thierry and Sophie Chardon founded their estate in 1996 in the village of Couffy on the Cher river. Thierry came from a family of winemakers but, after his father was forced to sell his vineyards, decided to become a firefighter instead. Years later, Touraine and family history drew them back and he and Sophie began a winemaking estate of their own. They converted to organic farming and winemaking practices in 2007 after plot comparison proved that the organic plots were healthier than those non-organically farmed. Their vineyards also benefit from gentle slopes and good drainage.
