All of Herve’s wines fall within the Cheverny and Cour-Cheverny AOCs and are planted in a mix of clay and sandy soils with silex stones in many of the parcels and a limestone base. Hervé began moving away from conventional farming in the late-nineties when, after a few years of working conventionally, he felt the wines weren’t as good as he thought they could be. After a few years of organic farming, he noticed a huge difference in quality, and never looked back.
