Jean-Michel Gautier/Domaine de la Racauderie - Vouvray

The Gautier family traces their Domaine in Vouvray to a land deed from 1669. Today, the Domaine de la Racauderie is run by Jean-Michel Gautier, who makes traditional Vouvray from the 35-hectare estate. His extensive underground cellars are carved out of tuffeau limestone, providing perfect natural conditions for the wines. He makes classic dry Vouvray Sec, a racy, off-dry Demi-Sec, and when nature permits, the rare Vouvray Moelleux, made from botrytis-infected, late-harvest grapes.  Jean-Michel also crafts a selection of high-quality, sparkling wines.
