LOIRE VALLEY WINES - HISTORY OF WINE MAKING


Vines already existed when Romans invaded the Loire Valley.
The legend says that Saint Martin was the first to make wine in the Loire region. It was in 380.

Such as in Burgundy, most of the vineyards belong to monasteries and monks had developed the wine production in the whole region.
