The vines of the Domaine des Ballandors cover 10 hectares on four sites:

«Le Pressoir», is a name that no doubt commemorates the communal press of Brinay Village. This parcel of land is comprised of sand and gravel and nourishes Sauvignon vines specially selected for their quality.
Chaumoux, 1 hectare of old vines at Brinay planted on clayey gravel.
Le Clos des Victoires, 1 ha 30 of old vines in a walled area of Quincy planted after the first world war, on clayey sand.
Les Ballandors, 1.80 hectares of young vines planted in 2004.

Over the years, the Domaine has filled out through successive plantings. To date, six hectares of vines have been planted at the Pressoir, and now encircle the village and its chateau. The plantings are based on a selection of Sauvignon varieties judged on the quality of specifically regional clones. These deep, sandy and gravelly soils produce very lively and expressive wines.
Two hectares of old vines were then acquired at Chaumoux and in the walled Clos de la Victoire on different terroirs (soils and conditions) composed of clayey gravel deposited on limestone.
The old vines have been kept and planted-in to maintain a richness and diversity that gives us full, ripe, languid wines. This Cuvée du Domaine brings together wines that are lively, fragrant and fruity. The sandy nature of the terroir produces expressive wines with lots of character.

And so, since 1993, our efforts have been rewarded with many distinctions.
