History

La Noblaie part, there are some hundreds of years, a whole polyculture when the land surrounding the area were already booked for cultivation of the vine, as shown in the map of carte de Cassiniin 1765.

Presses, vats and cellars carved out of the tufa are evidence of these past times.

The ancient culture of the vine gives its name to our village, "Le Vau Breton" which Rabelaisien language, means "Cabernet Franc Valley ", a unique variety of red wine of Chinon.
