As weird as it could sound, the vineyards at Ampelidae are not brand-new! They have a big historical heritage and have spread over these Poitou hills for more than thousand years.

The village of Marigny-Brizay has 9 castles, built during the wine expansion in the Middle-Ages. Nowadays, Ampelidae exploits and works with 5 of these domaines, with among them the eldest Manoir de Lavauguyot.
