It all started in 2004, when Joost de Willebois spotted a small well-run local winery in the Touraine region. The owner at the time established himself with a long tradition of producing the finest local Sauvignon Blanc wines however he lacked a successor.
Joost recognised this as a golden opportunity to transform the small winery into a wider producer of quality Sauvignon Blanc wines from the Loire region; Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and Touraine.
With the support of his wife, Miguela and a small group of close friends, Joost began the Villebois’ adventure. Since it's start Villebois has grown its business year in year out to what it has become today.
