The history of the Chainier family goes back to the 18th century, when Pierre Chainier's ancestors cultivated vines in the Bordeaux region. This tradition has been passed down from father to son and the Chainier Company today brings together a number of professional players, wine-growing businesses and major importers.

The Chainier family estates are filled with history and reflect the rich heritage of Touraine. The châteaux located on ancient terroirs overlook the Loire on the canton of the Château d’Amboise, once frequented by the greatest Kings of France and cultural figures. Leonard de Vinci, Cézanne, Proust, the Princesse des Ursins and the Daudet family came to stay in this region where wine has been produced since the 4th century, in the time of Saint-Martin.
