The largest, and one of the coolest, wine regions of France also happens to produce some of the most approachable, easy drinking wines in the world. And they are anything but boring. The wines of the Loire Valley in Central France are racy, acid filled and lively. They burst with character and complexity. Each of the white wines of the regions wraps citrus, stone fruit, white flowers, and tropical fruit, around bracing minerality, earthiness, smokiness, wet stone and steely characteristics that demonstrate the importance that soil and terroir (the slope of the land, the altitude, the direction of sunlight, the direction of the wind, etc.) have on wine, especially in Loire.
Wines To India The Loire Valley region is known as the “Garden of France” thanks to an abundance of vineyards, orchards, and fields of growing grains and vegetables. Stretching almost 185 miles long, the region starts about an hour and a half outside of Paris in Central France, and runs down the Loire River through historic cities such as Amboise, Angers, Chinon, Orléans, Saumur, and Tours. The wines of the region range from zippy, mineral and lemon filled Melon de Bourgogne, or Muscadet, near the city of Nates by the Atlantic Ocean; inland near the Cher River to Vouvray and Saumur where still dry and off dry, and sparkling styles of Chenin Blanc dominate; to the middle of the country where lively gooseberry, flint, stone fruit, herb and umami filled Sauvignon Blanc thrives from Reuilly, Sancerre and Quincy. I had a chance to visit the region recently, traveling as a guest of the Wines of Central Loire and InterLoire, tasting their white wines from one end of the region to the other, soaking in the history of the land that echos through the vineyards and into their wines.
Grover Vineyards India Most of the wineries in Loire are family owned and operated, many on their 4th or 5th generation. However, some have been farming their vineyards longer as they may have been working their land since before the French Revolution in the late 1700s, growing their produce for either the nobility or the church. Pre-Revolution one of the most humble jobs in France was that of a vigneron, or winemaker. After the revolution, these became prized positions, with families developing vineyards on land that was once used to graze cattle or grow grains. Though individual winemakers may not have held historical notoriety in the region, the wines certainly have for centuries.

Here’s a dirty secret about the seemingly rootsy and artisan life of a winemaker: Aside from jamming around the clock during harvest, many spend the rest of the year on the road, hitting markets across the state, country, and world to peddle their bottles in a cutthroat market that’s ever-demanding of their time and increasingly competitive with a steady stream of new brands both big and small. The grind got so wearing for veteran vintner Lane Tanner — who started at Firestone Vineyard in 1980 and then made Zaca Mesa and Hitching Post wines before starting her eponymous brand in 1989 — that she retired her historic pinot noir brand in 2009. “I wasn’t having fun anymore,” she explained.
Wine Business In India Thankfully for those of us who enjoy Tanner’s clean and bright style of pinot and chardonnay, the good times have returned, all thanks to her new business partner, Will Henry, whose father founded the Henry Wine Group, today one of the largest distributors in California. With his sales and marketing acumen — “I have a really good background on how to do things right,” said Henry, “and how not to do things wrong” — Tanner can focus solely on the winemaking of their brand, Lumen Wines, whose inaugural 2012 vintage is by-the-glass at many restaurants in Santa Barbara, including Sama Sama, Petit Valentien, and San Ysidro Ranch.
Wine Prices In India Lumen’s pinot and chard are from Sierra Madre Vineyard, where Tanner started working on a low-key project for the property’s owner, Doug Circle, in 2012, after her two years of retirement. But then Circle decided against founding his brand, so, as Tanner explained, “I had this beautiful wine with no home.” Henry serendipitously came knocking. “I was wanting to do a certain style of wine, and I’ve really been turned on by the low-alcohol movement, which is really more of a low-sugar-at-harvest movement,” he explained. “She’s always made wines along those lines and never changed to appease the critics.” After failed attempts to hire her as simply winemaker, he offered her a partnership, and she agreed.
