VINEYARDS

From its source to its estuary, the Loire, or ‘royal river’ as it as also known, winds its way majestically past châteaux and abbeys. Stretching from the centre of France to the Atlantic, the Loire Valley is where the North and South meet. It is a land with a refreshing cool climate, a land of art and literature, and of tradition and modernity.

The vineyards of the Loire Valley is the 3rd largest vineyard in France and extends along the Loire and its Chateaux. World famous with more than 2 000 years of existence, the producers of the Loire Valley cultivate an exceptional range of local wines : more than 60 appellations and denominations (Anjou, Sancerre, Vouvray, Crémant de Loire, Muscadet, Saumur Champigny…).

Loire Valley wines come in a distinctively wide range of colours and styles. The region’s rosés enjoy an excellent reputation. The reds, whether fruity or of the more cellar-worthy kind, truly shine when paired thoughtfully with food. The whites, which range from dry through to lusciously sweet, are ideal for every occasion. The sparkling wines, another Loire Valley speciality, are crafted using the Traditional Method.


WINE VALLEY QUALITY

The appellation system en¬sures the quality of each of the wines produced in the Loire Valley. Each appellation is required under European regulations to meet specific criteria relating to production area, grape varieties and winemaking techniques. The Loire Valley is divided into four major winegrowing regions: the Nantais region, Anjou-Saumur, Touraine and the Central Loire.
