A vineyard in the heart of the Loire Valley
Our 21-acre estate is located in Cour Cheverny between Loire and Sologne, near Château de Cheverny and Château Chambord and operates with sustainable farming practices.
We take great care of our vineyards, nurturing the soil, the plants and the surrounding environment. Our wines develop a unique character and represent the treasures of our terroir.
We combine both modern equipment and traditional winemaking methods to work the vines using clay-siliceous and limestone soil.
Many of our wines, produced from the grapes of our vines, are labelled “AOC Cheverny”, “AOC Cour-Cheverny” or “Vin de France”.
The estate is notably home to a 50-year old plot of land, just over 4,5 acres big, that produces a rare and unique grape. First introduced by Francois I of France, the “Romorantin” grape offers subtle yet captivating flavours that preserve its typicity.
The DARIDAN family
Son of a winemaker for seven generations, Benoit DARIDAN took to the commands of the 21-acre family vineyard in 2001, after extensive experience in France and around the world.
Passionate about his wine, his lands and the surrounding environment, Benoît has chosen to use a sustainable farming system.
After travelling the world and working for a number of different winegrowers, Stéphane joins the Domaine DARIDAN team in 2017.
He works alongside Benoît from the vineyard to the winery and assists the pruning, the harvesting, the vinification process, right up until the wine is finally bottled.
After several years working in event planning and catering, Christelle discovers Benoit’s wines and joined the team in 2017.
She is in charge of all administration aspects and takes care of sales and events.
Fabrice has always been a wine spirits sales consultant and is an expert in the local wine and catering industry.
He joined the team in 2017 and is in charge of marketing our products to professionals around the region.
