The vineyards of Domaine des Berthiers are situated in the hamlet of Berthiers, in the village of Saint-Andelain. The estate was owned by one of the key driving personalities of the Pouilly-Fumé region, Jean-Claude Dagueneau. When his health became more of an issue to run the vineyards, the Domaine became part of Domaine Fournier. The Pouilly-Fumé vineyards of Domaine des Berthiers are located on the siliceous hillside south west alongside the Loire river facing the vineyards of Sancerre.
The Fournier family has been making wine for many generations and their estate holdings have grown from 5 acres in 1950 to almost 150 acres today, divided over the appellations of Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Menetou-Salon. The Pouilly-Fumé wines produced by Domaine des Berthiers are full-bodied and exhibit the rich, spicy and smoky nuances of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal.
