The Domaine des Sables Verts is located in Verrains, in the heart of the Saumur Champigny appellation in the Loire Valley. The estate was taken over in 2019 by Caroline Meurée and Hervé Malinge. The vineyard covers 16.50 hectares and 5 municipalities: Varrains, Chacé, Saumur, Souzay-Champigny and Parnay. The 33 plots offer a diversity and complementarity of terroirs which is part of an ecological approach that respects the environment. Some of the vines are cultivated on “green sand” soils; sands deposited in the secondary era, more or less calcareous and rich in glauconia. These green sands bring freshness and concentration on Cabernet Francs.
