Celine and Benoit Blet

Located in Oiron a small village of Les Deux Sevres in the Loire Valley, Celine and Benoit Blet took over this small estate in 2004 located near the city of Poitier.

They have been farming organically since 2010 and approach making wines with their Chenin Blanc, Gamay and Cabernet Franc with the least intervention possible.
