Situated on the foothills of the Massif Central, the 200 hectares of the AOC Côte Roannaise is the first wine producing area of the valley of the Loire river, near its source.The soil, a mixture of granite and porphyry, and the climate are both ideal for the production of Gamay Saint Romain, the traditional local grape variety.
Stéphane Sérol took over the state in 1998, following his parents, Robert and Marie, who had already set high standards for the domaine’s viticulture. Domaine SEROL cultivates 28 hectares, wich they are in the process of converting toward organic agriculture. The main grape variety is Gamay Saint Romain. Stéphane and his wife, Carine, vinify with the goal of preserving the grapes true expression and isolating the best terroirs to reveal their unique identities.
