Covering 20,000 hectares, the vineyards of Anjou and Saumur encompass the largest wine-growing area in the Loire Valley. And with a total of 28 different appellations to choose from, there’s something for everyone! Names that will be most familiar to visitors include Anjou, mainly represented by its light reds, the Coteaux de la Loire, Les Savennières and its famous 'Coulée de Serrant', Coteaux de l'Aubance, and Coteaux du Layon, with two appellations, Quarts de Chaume and Bonnezeaux particularly renowned for wines which age well. In the Saumurois area, wines from Saumur include a varied production of whites and reds, and in particular two excellent sparkling wines, Crémant de Loire and Saumur Brut. Not forgetting the very popular Saumur Champigny, a light and lively red wine with its aroma of red berries. Make sure you enjoy a tasting in the Maisons des Vins de Loire in Angers and Saumur.
