Located in the eastern section of Touraine, just between the Sologne and the left bank of the Loire, Christian Venier tends his vines of classic Loire varietals. He has a deep set of roots himself, as his family has been making wine and tending vines for centuries in the region. Out of his seven brothers, he was the only one who decided to take up the family tradition. Christian has refocused the winery's attention to the soils and their unique expressions through the varietals. He purchased fourteen hectares of vines from a farmer in Madon, the town in which he was born, and revitalized the old cellars in his father’s home in 1998. He farms with biodynamic methods, intervening as little as possible. 

The "Le Clos des Carteries" is 70% Gamay and 30% Pinot noir from a small parcel (of the same name) of 20-40 year old grapes on soils of sand, silex and clay. Semi-carbonic maceration with whole-clusters followed by spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts. The entire process begins in cement and is then moved to a tank to settle and age on lees before being bottled with no SO2.

Plush, medium-bodied with bright brambly berries and cherries, some earthy, forest floor notes, medium tannins and good acidity.
