about domaine guy mardon

Father and son winemakers Guy and Jean-Luc Mardon run the family estate of Domaine Guy Mardon on 35 hectares in the heart of Touraine. Guy ran the domaine from 1970-1995, when Jean-Luc, the fifth generation, took over the day to day operations.

Jean-Luc maintains traditional vineyard and winemaking practices. The wine is still aged in the original cellar under the family home. Since 1995, the winery has reduced yields and become a member of Terra Vitis, a group that pursues environmentally friendly viticulture, without the use of pesticides. Each parcel is vinified separately before blending.

Domaine Guy Mardon is located on a plateau between the Loir and Cher rivers. An Atlantic climate with low rainfall, ample sun and cool nights, combined with sandy soil over a clay base leads to an excellent acidity and aromatics in their grapes.
