Spring is arriving, bringing with it the urge to go out and discover the treasures around us.

At Domaine de Rocheville, the new Saumur wine vintages are waiting to be discovered alongside Marie Tellig’s colorful abstract art paintings. Don’t miss the first exhibition of the season!

Art and wine in the Saumur Champigny vineyards

Wine and abstract art paintings to celebrate spring

Domaine de Rocheville, located on the plateau of Parnay, near Saumur, boasts a 360° panoramic view. On one side, you can see the Saumur-Champigny vineyards, on the other, the view stretches across the Loire and its surroundings.

Since 2014, in addition to producing and selling artisanal organic wines, Rocheville has also played host to art galleries. The winery regularly exhibits the work of contemporary artists, both local (painters, photographers, illustrators, etc.) and from other regions of France or the world.

Its large glassed-in tasting room transforms into a bright exhibition hall, with its white stone walls enhancing a wide variety of artworks.

It’s the ideal environment for bridging the gap between art and wine. Throughout the year, you can discover art exhibitions of all kinds, ranging from abstract art paintings to photography, while tasting the estate’s wines and admiring the view from the panoramic terrace.

From glass to canvas: each with its own color

While our wines come in three colors (white for Saumur Blanc and Crémant de Loire, red for Saumur Champigny, rosé for Saumur Rosé and Pétillant Naturel), the abstract paintings explore all shades.

This is particularly the case with the works of artist-painter Marie Tellig. Her brush captures the colors of spring, dressing the walls of the exhibition hall in vibrant green, yellow, pink, and blue.

Tasting Rocheville’s wines while experiencing her exhibition is a double pleasure for the eyes, and of course, for the palate!

Marie Tellig’s Exhibition: a French artist passionate about colors

This exhibition is made possible thanks to the Maison-Gallery Le Cactus Bleu, an artistic partner of the Domaine de Rocheville since 2022.

Both a guesthouse and an art gallery located in Touraine, Le Cactus Bleu has previously exhibited several works by the artist.

Who is Marie Tellig ?

Marie Tellig is a contemporary artist originally from Indre, who now lives and works in Touraine.

From a young age, Marie was drawn to the arts and dreamed of becoming a stylist. 

However, she initially studied philosophy, then pursued careers in law, teaching, and real estate before returning to painting in a private studio in 2000.

Upon her teacher’s advice, she exhibited her paintings for the first time in Saint Cyr sur Loire in 2006.

The exhibition was well-received and was followed by many others, throughout the Loire valley, in Nevers, Paris, and even in Florida, in solo or group exhibitions.

What is Marie Tellig’s artistic technique?

Marie Tellig primarily defines herself as a colorist.

She has a clear preference for abstraction, which allows her to be guided by her emotions and paint spontaneously. However, depending on inspiration, she sometimes incorporates figurative elements (human, architectural, or even vegetal forms) into her paintings.

The artist practices mixed media, combining acrylic paint and oil pastels on canvas. She paints with brushes, palette knives, or even fingers, which brings relief and movement to her abstract art paintings.

Marie Tellig’s works: colorful abstract art paintings without titles

Marie Tellig’s exhibition at Domaine de Rocheville brings together around thirty modern paintings of various sizes. These range from larger abstract-style paintings of 100×80 cm to a set of three small square formats of 20×20 cm. The three small paintings, painted in blue tones, form a lovely triptych displayed in the estate’s shop.

On some, figurative elements are clearly recognizable: large stylized flower bouquets, a row of cabins, a forest, characters (a woman in a long dress, a masculine silhouette evoking a bullfighter) standing out against a multicolored background…

Other paintings are abstract works where colors mingle freely, without calculation, according to the artist’s emotions.

Marie Tellig considers art as a space of freedom offered to everyone. Her pictorial universe suggests and leaves the viewer free to interpret.

That’s why her canvases have no titles: feel free to imagine a title for each of her paintings!
