Chateau Gaudrelle is situated in the heart of the Loire Valley between Tours and Amboise, on the right bank of the Loire River. Founded in 1931 by the grandfather of Alexandre Monmousseau, our winery is well-known for the richness of the region’s soil and the detailed attention we give to the making of our Vouvray wines: dry, semi-dry, sweet and sparkling.
