Chateau de Chaintre is owned and run by Jean Paul Paquet and his family wine business. In preparation for their son Yannick joining the family business, Jean Paul and his wife Monique decided they needed to increase the size of their vineyard holdings. The perfect opportunity to do so arose in 2003 when they purchased this Domaine in Chaintré, in the old vineyard of Château de Chaintré, and comprises 6 hectares that produce Macon-Chaintre and Bourgogne-Chardonnay.
The story of the Chateau itself started at the beginning of the 12th century when it belonged to the Seigneurie des Chaintré, one of the oldest families in the Macon region. The Chateau has been redeveloped and now comprises of a number of privately owned flats.
