Loire Valley’s Soul poured into your glass…
Called the “Garden of France” for its noble landscapes, the Loire Valley is defined by France’s longest river going 600 miles from East to West, crossing 5 different regions from the Ardèche in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region to the Atlantic Ocean.
From the Roman Empire to the introduction of the Appellation d’Origine Controlee (the system for quality wines in France) in 1935 and up to today, the Valley has always been recognized for its perfect climate and diversified soils for quality vines. Given its unique Northerly location, in addition to the substance and vitality afforded by the river, the climate is conducive to producing beautifully refined and concentrated Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau and Pinot Noir. This well-adjusted climate, in conjunction with the soil composition, allows grapes the ability to ripen uniformly and efficiently and thus enhances the wines’ ultimate flavor and aromatic concentration.
Today, the Valley is France’s third largest producer among official denominations, yet still flew under the radar until we made it accessible for you! Le Garenne offers you a powerful Super Premium wine experience at an affordable price. Explore the uniqueness of Loire’s terroir.
Le Garenne Sustainable Wines: Both Good for your Taste Buds and Mother Nature
In between Muscadet and Sancerre lie 51 AOPs (Protected Designation of Origin meaning the wine comes from a specific regulated region with allowed grapes, growing conditions and minimum quality) and 4 IGP (Protected Geographical Indication labeled with the grape varieties as well as the IGP zone) that represent the most extensive, diversified and original vineyard in Europe, among which 25% is run under Sustainable agriculture (“biologique” or organic in French /HVE – as High Environmental Value). From these, we curated only the highest quality wines from sustainable family farms to bring you the most healthy and authentic experience!
Sustainable winegrowing is very important to us as it carries a comprehensive set of practices that are environmentally sound, socially equitable and economically viable. We select carefully Winegrape growers and vintners throughout the Loire Valley that grow and make high quality grapes and wine. Their sustainable vineyard and winery practices conserve water and energy, maintain healthy soil, protect air and water quality, enhance relations with employees and communities, preserve local ecosystems and wildlife habitat, and improve the economic vitality of vineyards and wineries.
