Loire – rich in history and in wine

In Loire in central France wine is produced from vineyards along the Loire river and its many tributaries, with majestic castles dotted in between. Loire has made its’ name from its white Sauvignon Blanc wines from the Upper Loire including Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, its Chenin Blanc from the Middle Loire including Anjou-Saumur, as well as its Cabernet Franc’s from Bourgueil and Chinon among others.

It was in Chinon that the French national hero, Joan of Arc at just age 17 in 1429 took it upon herself to liberate France from the English empire. This history of France is ever present when touring towns and vineyards along their longest river, running 1000 km from Massif Central to the Atlantic coast passing Orléans (150 km south of Paris) on the way.

The first vine plantings came to Loire with the Romans. In the 9th to the 12th centuries, monastic life accelerated vineyard development and the French royals’ love for wine accelerated further winemaking in the Loire during the European Renaissance, particularly between the 14th and 17th centuries.

Today’s wine market isn’t fair & just. Not just for the winemakers. Not just for you.

Now you can change that. Jump the middlemen. Handcrafted wine from cellar door to your door.

No hassle, no mark-ups, no nonsense. Just wine.
