Le Chateau de Troussay, the oldest historical wine making area in Cheverny.
Troussay’s wine returns to shelves after 50 years.
The organic wine maker Philippe Tessier was born on Troussay’s estate where his parents worked producing our wine for nearly 100 years. Following in his father’s footsteps, he opened his own vineyard next door to Troussay in 1981, and in 1998 went organic.
The cultivation of vine has been a part of Troussay’s story for more than 500 years. Troussay was founded during the Renaissance as a wine making estate. We still have the screw thread from the original wine press used from the 16th century which is on display in the museum of agriculture and wine making. The museum pays homage to the heritage of this area thanks to the hard work of the Friends of Troussay Association headed up by Catherine Perroche.
In the 19th century, the estate included nearly 700 hectares of woodland and vineyards. The then owner Louis de la Saussaye worked for the improvement of Cheverny’s wine quality and founded the village of Cormeray for those who cultivated his vines there. Today, Philippe Tessier cultivates some of the original vines to produce wine for Troussay.
Troussay’s wine, which is grown in both Cheverny and Cour Cheverny, is on sale at the boutique
