Benefiting from a unique cultural landscape, the Loire Valley is France’s 3rd largest winegrowing region. Stretching from the Atlantic coast to the Centre region, it is a point of equilibrium, where north meets south, sophistication meets freshness, art meets literature, and tradition meets modernity. These contrasts - plus the generally temperate climate and extraordinarily varied terroirs - have created the most diverse winegrowing region in the world. ESPRIT DE LOIRE is its worthy representative, with a wide variety of products for all tasting moments and pleasures. This portfolio is made up of premium brands, at once diverse and rich, thanks to their terroirs of origin, local growers, strong values and historic know-how, thereby creating the wines of tomorrow.
As a result, the portfolio of ORCHIDEES, MAISONS DE VIN, offers a selective range of still and fine sparkling Loire Valley wines made up of premium offerings with a national dimension, elaborated by Ackerman (sparkling wines), and Aristide Luneau (still wines); with a European dimension, elaborated by Drouet Frères (still wines); and with an international dimension, elaborated by Donatien Bahuaud (still wines), Remy Pannier (still wines) and Monmousseau (sparkling wines), joined by Marquis de la Tour’s brands (sparkling wines), marketed overseas.
Esprit de Loire’s selection contributes to the creation of tomorrow’s wines and is the ambassador of a new form of vine-growing even more respectful of the vintner, consumer and environment.
