CREMANT DE LOIRE

Production Region

Did you know ?

The Saumur area incorporates the very best conditions for producing sparkling wine. Fresh wine is made from grapes grown on the slopes, and readily takes on a light sparkle; cellars for maturing the wine are dug directly into the tuffeau hillsides, and, at the foot of the hill, the river Loire waits to transport  the wines to their final destination.
