The Château de Chasseloir has belonged to our family since 1953. Here we produce 3 wines from the 25 hectares of vines aged between 35 and 120 years! In addition to the purely wine producing aspect, we maintain a unique historic heritage in the vineyard. The estate has a 15th century tower and a barrel cellar sculpted with Rabelaisian characters. The Château de Chasseloir dates back to the 15th century. At that time, the existing château was one of the ancient “marches” or borderlands between Brittany and France, owned by the Comte Leloup de Chasseloir.

It was destroyed in the French Revolution and never rebuilt. Thanks to the writings of Sophie Trébuchet, Victor Hugo’s mother, we now know that it had seven towers (one of which still stands), an orangery and an inner courtyard. The white chalkstones were reused to build the farm and the farmhouse. Most of the grey stones covering the façades are schist extracted from the quarry at the bottom of the hill. The unique barrel cellar shows the seven capital sins and the seven virtues as well as characters straight out of François Rabelais’ books.
