The Catch
The Flies
The Patience

Domaine de Montcy - Terra Laura

Coming from a family of olive growers in Liguria in Italy, Laura Semeria never dreamed she’d end up making wine in the heart of France. A trip to the Loire Valley and a taste of Cour-Cheverny changed everything. This intriguing wine, made from the romorantin grape, captured her imagination entirely.

Domaine de Montcy - Terra Laura

Coming from a family of olive growers in Liguria in Italy, Laura Semeria never dreamed she’d end up making wine in the heart of France. A trip to the Loire Valley and a taste of Cour-Cheverny changed everything. This intriguing wine, made from the romorantin grape, captured her imagination entirely.

In 2007, just five days before the harvest, she took over Domaine de Montcy in Cheverny. The estate covers 20 hectares and boasts vines up to 80 years old. In 2008, she began converting it to organic viticulture, and biodynamics followed in 2010. She now produces reds from pinot noir, gamay and côt, and whites from sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and romorantin. She is one of only a handful producers within the tiny Cour-Cheverny appellation.
