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,

Dec 2014 : in "Marianne à Table" issue an article about the Brut Blanc de Targé

Nov 2014 : Pierre Seillan the Quintessence's creator
I am moved: the first "Maître de Chai" at Targé I ever had has sky rocketed in the wine making in the last 35 years : he has been dedicated 7 times 100/100 by Robert Parker, the famous "Wine Advocate" : he is now one of the best winemakers in the world.
It has been him who helped me to create the "Quintessence of Targé"
