Domaine Sangouard

Domaine Sangouard is a family-owned winery going back several generations and located in Leynes, a
tiny town at the border of Beaujolais and Mâconnais. The domain owns 8.5 hectares (21 acres) of
sloping vineyards, some on the limestones and clays of the Mâconnais, others on the crumbling
granites of Beaujolais, most of them facing South.
Vincent Sangouard took over the family domain in 1983 and approaches winemaking with a
combination of tradition and innovation.
He learned his trade in his father’s cellar while also attending school in viticulture and oenology. Now
working with his wife, he practices a sustainable form of agriculture (lutte raisonnée) that includes
chemically spraying his vines only when necessary and letting weeds and grass grow between the
rows to attract beneficial insects and stave off erosion
