Loire is a French wine region, whose wines are labeled by different AOCs. The Loire Valley runs through most of France, following the course of the river of the same name. The vineyards occupy an area of 82,000 ha. From the most elegant dry whites (Sancerre) to the freshest (Muscadet) or the jewels of sweet wine (Coteaux-Du-Layon), without forgetting the most seductive rosés (Anjou) and some delicious reds (Chinon, Bourgueil), the Loira region has it all. Also history, castles, beautiful forests, vineyards, landscapes and memorable sparkling wines.

The varietal base is made up of the Chenin Blanc and the Sauvignon Blanc for white wines, in addition to the Cabernet (Sauvignon and Franc) for reds. On a smaller scale, Casselas, Muscadet, Gros Plant, Malbec, Grolleau, Pineau d'Aunis and Pinot Noir are grown. The extensive Loire Valley can be divided into four regions, subdivided into numerous AOCs, these are: Pays Nantais, Anjou and Saumur, Touraine, and Center.
