Château De La Presle was originally purchased in 1885 by the Vicomte De Gourcy. Until 1970, the estate produced a variety of crops, and it was only when Jean-Marie Penet took over that the focus was switched solely to winegrowing. In 1998, his daughter Anne-Sophie inherited the estate and runs it with her husband Frédéric Meurgey. Burgundian by birth , Frédéric Meurgey brought his passion for classic white wines to the Loire, a passion inherited from his father: Henri Meurgey, one of Beaune's best known and most respected winemakers. Needless to say he is a major exponent of the quality of the Oisly terroir and the wines it produces.

The estate's forty hectares of vineyards in the Touraine appellation are planted on the clay and sandy soils of the Oisly plateau where they benefit from the influence of the Loire to the north and the Cher to the south.

The vineyards of Château De La Presle are tended in as natural a manner as possible, allowing the Meurgey-Penet family to produce wines of fantastic purity of flavour that could happily grace any table on any occasion.
