Little story ...
It is in 1996 that Sophie and Thierry give birth to the "Domaine de l'Aumonier". A very symbolic name since the vines of Sophie's grandparents were the first to be exploited by the young couple. Starting from nothing, they started the domain with ten hectares bought from retired winegrowers; no work tool, no customers and little money, but with a common desire and the know-how of Thierry, rich in 6 years of experience on a farm in Mareuil sur Cher as head of culture, and with the experience of its elders, winegrowers for several generations ...
Punctuated Milestones of ...
1997: Construction of a first winemaking and storage cellar. The farm then covers 12 hectares.
1998: the estate expands, we go from 12 to 32 hectares of vines.
Today, the estate has 32 hectares in production.

Gradually, soil cultivation is generalized
Pesticides and insecticides are replaced by some products labeled in organic cultivation.
