Winemaker at Morogues,
wines of Menetou-Salon & Sancerre
Our Domaine takes its roots in Morogues, a village at the far eastern end of the Loire Valley. Our cellars are close to the village centre, nestling below our beautiful “Les Cris” red grape vineyard. In each of our vineyard plots in the neighbouring Menetou-salon and Sancerre appellations, we observe Mother Nature, cherishing and working with her so that she gives us her very best in return.
In this part of the world, we think, make and drink wine; sharing ideas, a glass of wine or two, and the taste of our land, with our friends and customers.
These lines are written by the current generation but they apply to Domaine Pellé from its very beginning. Over time, the world has accelerated but nature has stayed faithful, determining the work of the winemaker, year after year, with each new season. With the same devotion to his craft, the winemaker still slips through the cellar door late at night to check on the wines, only now he is wearing sneakers not clogs!
In our vineyards
The work carried out in our vineyards is designed to take the unique expressions of each one of our terroirs from the vine to the bottle. The parcels are grown without the use of weed killer or pesticide and the soils are ploughed. We take care of the vineyards each day, which enables us to carefully consider each operation we undertake, ensuring we act with precision and in a sustainable manner.

2018 : Winter had almost passed us by when in February, just as the apricot trees had started to blossom, we finally had a proper cold spell. Spring was not long in coming and by mid-April the vine had unfurled an abundance of delicate greenery. The frequent, heavy...read more
