Les Tètes

30

Les Tètes is a small wine project run collaboratively by 4 friends, Nicolas, Philippe, Baptiste, and Vivien.  They are located in the village of Le Pressoir in Touraine Azay-le-Rideau in the Loire Valley.  Les Tètes is focused on bringing fresh and fruity competitively-priced wines that are grown organically and fermented with native yeasts and with only minimal sulfur added.  In their own words, “Les Tétes is about friendship, and wines you drink with friends.”

Les Tètes are produced at Le Pressoir, in the village of Panzoult.  The vineyards are near Honoré de Balzac’s birthplace and Alexander Calder’s workshop, in the unspoiled landscape surrounding Château de Rigny-Ussé. The grapes of “Les Tètes Au Bois Dormant” (sparkling rosé and white) come directly from the domain of Château de Rigny-Ussé.

“Les Parcelles” by Les Tètes are produced in very small quantities, on parcels (less then one hectar) among the most select AOC (Appellation d’Origine Controllée/controlled designation of origin) in Touraine.
