About Domaine Thierry Michaud
At the heart of the Loire Valley, this area is located on the right bank of the Cher in Noyers, a small town in the Centre region. The family farm is the result of the work and experience of three generations in the respect of tradition and progress. Our motto: “the pursuit of quality through the expression of our terroir”. Observing and respecting the nature, it is the commitment of our Estate. From vine to wine, our work is a marriage of traditional method, leaf, and collage in red and white wines with egg white … 23 hectares of vines split between Touraine, Touraine-Chenonceaux and Cremant de Loire appellation with Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Cot (Malbec).
