The village of Oisly has a long tradition of winegrowing, and is recognised as the home of the famous Sauvignon grape. Although it had been flourishing in the sandy soils of Sologne since 1905, Sauvignon really began to develop in the 1960s. In the mid 1980s, an organisation was founded to acknowledge the Oisly terroir and its character - the first step on the journey to official recognition. Generation followed generation, and wine professionals continue to create outstanding wines to showcase the Sauvignon grape.
