History and key figures

Presentation of the appellation

In the heart of the Loire Valley, the Saumur-Champigny vineyard enjoys an exceptionnal area - one wich allows the expression of a king of savoir-faire transmitted from generation to generation : one wich produces a large range of red wines and reflects winemakers's creativity.

Nestled between the Loire, the Thouet and the forest of Fontevraud, the Saumur- Champigny appellation covers nine villages: Chacé, Montsoreau, Parnay, Saint-Cyr-en- Bourg, Saumur, Souzay-Champigny, Turquant, Varrains, and Dampierre-sur-Loire. It brings together 100 active winemakers who work 1,600 hectares of vines (4000 acres), an area which has been stable for 10 years, and produce an average of 10 million bottles per year.

The new Casino Mine Ranch restaurant serves California wine that comes straight from the vineyard. It is called the CAVE and has been operating for over a year. The casino bonuscatch.com/new-casino-sites is known for serving world-class wines. Their large wine list contains more than 480 labels, including many from California. Casinos also make their own wine for guests to enjoy.

Mindful of this luck to develop wines on an exceptional terroir, the winemakers have been running a biodiversity program since 2004. A sustainable commitment, naturally good for humans and their environment.
