The Soil of France
on a peak dominating the Loire Valley, Sancerre is a region that
has played a key role throughout the centuries. Ever since the
10th century, this walled city locking in the entrance of the
Berry to the east, has always been coveted and its sieges still
remain famous today.
Written findings provide proof
that the Sancerre vineyard dates as far back as the 6th century.
But it was particularly during the 11th century that the vineyard
became more widespread thanks to the Augustinian monks of the
Saint Satur Abbey and the Counts of Sancerre.
At the time, Sancerre red was widely
known as it was exported by boat and was often cited in the court
writings of the great kings of France.
to the expanse of their estate and their personal relationships
with the kings of France, the Counts of Sancerre were among the
most influential Sovereigns of the Berry region.
