Producer Profiles – Coteaux du Vendômois  

Philippe Chidaine

This Paris based management consultant owns half a hectare of Pineau d’Aunis in the hamlet of Bois Freslon just outside Ternay. The vines are all worked to the principles of biodynamic farming. Chidaine visits the farm at the weekend and rumour has it he harvests only at the weekend too. He sells most of his production to bars and cavistes in the capital. Regrettably, Philippe had forgotten our appointment during my week long research in the region, but I look forward to tasting them at some point in the future.
