Welcome on the website of the Château de Targé!


Welcome to the Château de Targé !

Here, you will learn everything about our wines - and especially the famous Saumur-Champignys - about their terroir, their history and their medals. You will have the possibility to order wine, and learn about our distributors where you can find them.

Finally, you can take a look on our "gîte de charme" for two, for a day or a week.

I wish you a pleasant visit,

Nov 2014 : Pierre Seillan the Quintessence's creator
