Sail up the Loire River, on a "gabare" - a local type of boat - meandering through the vineyards and discovering our wines: "Vallée Loire" is a group of wines that act as ambassadors for the Loire Valley AOP, marked by their character, freshness, and approachability.


The "Vallée Loire" brand is a group of wines that are ambassadors for the Val de Loire AOP, marked by their character, freshness and accessibility.
The vines are planted on the hillsides of the Saumur region.
The main feature of this area is its clay-limestone soil: this soft white stone, known as tuffeau, used in the construction of the châteaux of the Loire, encourages good root development in the vines and ensures a moderate water supply.
