In 1889, Valérie Dagueneau's great-grandmother began , the current owner, to grow wine on two hectares. Her grandson Serge, after whom the winery is named today, expanded the business and handed it over to his daughter Valérie, who continues the work of her ancestors with great passion.
Today, the Domaine Serge Dagueneau cultivates twenty-one hectares in Pouilly-sur-Loire, where a small plot of over 100-year-old Chasselas vines makes for an exciting wine mainly in Pouilly-Fumé, where she brings decidedly elegant Sauvignon Blanc to the bottle. These vines also have a very high average age of over 40 years. This ensures depth and aromatic diversity in the wines. The calcareous soils, here called Terres Blanches, ensure the finesse. There are also vineyards in the IGT Côtes de la Charité.
The cultivation takes place according to the specifications of the High Environmental Value certification (HEV), no artificial fertilizers, chemical weed control and biological agents against pests are used (pheromone traps).
Numerous awards underline the high quality of Serge Dagueneau wines, for example in the Guide Hachette, Concours des Vignerons Indépendants 2020 and in many international wine publications.
