COTEAUX D'ANCENIS

Production Region

Did you Know ?

Although there is evidence of wild vines growing in the Ancenis area some 8,000 years ago, it wasn't until the 3rd century AD, under the influence of the Roman Empire, that viticulture became a feature of both banks of the Loire. During the Middle Ages, as priories and abbeys were being established in the area, winegrowing flourished. By 1573, the town of Ancenis had built a reputation as a major market for wines from the banks of the Loire. King Charles IX authorised a number of fine wine brokerage offices in the town's port area.
