As its name suggests, Dampierre sur Loire was first known for its tuffeau quarrying. All the cellars here were dug by man, the first over a thousand years ago, and our cellar is just one tiny part of a gigantic underground network.
By digging in the tufa stone, our ancestors were killing two birds with one stone: they were selling or using the ashlars, and at the same time building a home and shelter for their livestock and crops, including, of course, the wine.
