2018

Our journey now continues in Touraine and more exactly in Vouvray. The Vobridius cuvée refers to the first name given to the commune, which appears in writings from the end of the 8th century. The result of the collaboration between two passionate winegrowers, Philippe Brisebarre and Laurent Kraft, this Chenin blanc was developed to reflect the expression of the Vouvray terroir as faithfully as possible.
