ABOUT DOMAINE DE LERY
The Bellier family has worked hard to produce high quality wines for three generations. Domaine de Lery is located in Vineuil (Loire Valley), overlooking the Loire River. The estate is surrounded by the famous castles of Chambord, Cheverny, and Blois.
The philosophy at Domaine de Lery is to produce quality wines with maximum care for the environment. The winery is a member of Terra Vitis, an organization that certifies sustainable farming. They encourage biodiversity in the estate and no fertilizers are used.
The vines benefit from deep layers of beauce limestone, siliceous clay mix, and chalky soils that cover the vineyards. The average vine age ranges from 20 to over 50 years old. The grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. A slow fermentation then takes place at low temperatures.
Today, Audrey and Marion, the family's 3rd generation, carefully produce classic, elegant, and well balanced wines.
