Marque de Las Cases and her husband Bernard du Closel had no children ; Chateau des Vaults was given to their niece : Michèle de Féligonde . With the help of her husband Jacques Bazin de Jessey for 30 years and her daughter Evelyne de Pontbriand, she brought international renown to the estate, for both the gardens and the vineyards. Michèle and Evelyne were elected successively to president of the AOC Savennières. In the heart of the Savennières hills, part of a world heritage site and a bird refuge, this remarkable site is both a conservation area for rare plants from the banks of the Loire and one of the most prestigious vineyards in the Loire valley. The development of wine tourism has made this estate a leading player in local tourism. More than 12,000 visitors stroll along the path through our grounds every year. The Chateau des Vaults, with its concerts, literature evenings, modern sculpture exhibitions and many other events involving nature and our way of life, has also become a wonderfully rich cultural venue in its own right. The days of stonework are over, we are now constructing an image of excellence in the domain of French wine. Read less
