Esprit de loire

« A selective range, combining richness and diversity »

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, a portfolio of premium brands, at once diverse and rich, thanks to their terroirs of origin, local growers, strong values and historic know-how.
