Domaine Leseurre Winery offers a personal approach to winemaking. “We trust our taste buds only,” say winemakers Sebastien and Celine, “as we don't want to be influenced by a number.” After growing up in the vineyards of Champagne and the South of France and working on 16 vintages around the world, they have experienced diverse methods of winemaking and prefer to “sample berries and do everything by taste.” Try their wines and you’ll know why.
Domaine LeSeurre strives to produce terroir wines of vitis vinfera quality in our cold climate region. With views of the barrel room, the wine shop is quite charming.
