Esprit de Loire


“A selective range, combining richness and diver”

About the portfolio


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.

French Market


Nationwide coverage…

Our red, white and rosé estate and chateau wines are easy to find, thanks to the group’s winemaking, marketing and sales teams. The Ackerman and Drouet Frères ranges are mainly sold directly in Saumur and by super and hyper markets; the Monmousseau and Donatien Bahuaud selections are distributed by the catering sector or on-line and off-line wine stores. And the Emilie Laurance range and some products sold by Maison Drouet Frères are provided by specialized wholesalers.

Export markets


... International scope

The export market is part of our group’s DNA thanks to Louis Ferdinand or even Remy Pannier who were forerunners in fine sparkling wine exports for the former and Loire Valley rosés for the latter. This is why it is important for our team to travel worldwide to promote the finest Loire Valley appellations. Nearly all of our still and sparking wines are distributed in Europe and further afield.

Travel Retail


In keeping with the spirit of our founder, Jean-Baptiste Ackerman, travelling is a source of inspiration. This is why we send our Loire Valley wines worldwide for the stopovers of our consumers.
