Viti Loire Wines

The Loire Valley is France’s premier wine region with over 70 AOC wines.

AOC stands for ‘Appellation d’origine contrôlée‘ (controlled designation of origin).

This is a French certification granted to regional French agricultural products such as wine, cheese, and butter.

A wide variety of wines are produced in the Loire Valley, and it is especially well-known for its dry whites such as Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, and Vouvray.
