About the winery
Throughout the year, the vines are under constant observation. Over the seasons we lavish on them the most appropriate care In the respect for the tradition of wine grower's job. In this spirit, we fight, in the most biologically way available, against diseases and parasites, and care for the wine according to lunar rhythms and plant grass in the vineyards in order to restore balance and structure to the ground. After being carefully sorted, the grapes are pressed slowly in a pneumatic press to extract the best fruit. The juice is then transferred into stainless steel tanks for fermentation in a progressive and controlled temperature. Our cellars, which are situated in the village, house the stainless steel tanks in the first cellar as well as our tasting room, ideal for enjoying the new vintage! We have 2 vaulted cellars : one with the oak barrels for the winemaking of our red wines and the second one with oak and acacia barrels for the ageing of our white wine, Cuvée Pauline.

History & Geography
It all began with Pauline, the great-grandmother of Eric, who in 1860 sold her wine at markets. "Les Celliers de la Pauline” (Pauline’s Cellars) owe their name to her as well as our special vintage which was named "Cuvée Pauline" in her honour. Then his son, Julien, with his wife Louise, took up the torch after Pauline, caring for the vineyard and his wine keeping to the same traditions, with love and respect. Later came his son Leon, who by marrying Ginette, joined two vineyards, and created the Cellars of the Pauline. Ginette's father, Paul Cantin known as "Robert" was a famous regional storyteller. He knew how to describe the Sancerre Region and its traditions in the local dialect and singing about the past. In the 70's, with the developpment of export, Sancerre and Pauline's Cellar became more and more famous in France and worldwide, thanks to the work of Léon Louis.
