Get to Know Sancerre at Vincent Grall Vigneron
Once popular in the 12th century for its red wine made of Pinot Noir, the vineyard of Sancerre gained popularity due to the Augustinian monks of the abbey of Saint Satur and the Counts of Sancerre. It was not until 1936, that Sancerre was recognized for the first appellation of white wines. The classification of red wine and rosé wine in Sancerre was only created in 1959. They underwent a complete restructuring after the phylloxera epidemic in the late 19th century. Currently, the vineyard spreads over 2500 ha. Visitors can explore Sancerre on foot. There are plenty of places to discover such as hidden gardens, an entanglement of houses and the picturesque streetscapes.
The Great Terroir of Vincent Grall Vigneron
Located in the Loire Valley, Vincent Grall Vigneron vineyard receives an immense contribution from the Loire River in the maturation of nearby vineyards. The Sancerre peak, between the Loire and the Berrichon Plateau, influences the hilly landscape of the vineyard and the valley of the Loire. The Sauvignon Blanc grape is now very well adapted to the soil and climate of the area and grows on the hillsides.
