Ampelidæ (from Ampelos, the vine) was created in 1995 by Frédéric Brochet in the village of Marigny-Brizay, in the Vienne department. It is now owned by Benjamin and Kate Meuli.

Composed of three plots surrounding the village (Marigny, Vouzailles and Lencloitre), the vineyard covers an area of about 30 km in the South of the Loire Valley. The geological structure allows to plant different varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc and Gris, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc.

Ampelidæ cares about producing wines respecting their terroir (organic certification), their time (low addition of sulfur, screwcaps) and human beings (from suppliers to consumers): this is our defintion of Contemporary Wines.
