Les Caves de la Loire
The n°1 Producer of Anjou and Saumur wines
Les Caves de La Loire merged in 2020 with the Confrérie des Vignerons de Oisly et Thésée and the Caves des Vins de Rabelais to give a new dimension to the group.
The Confrérie des Vignerons de Oisly et Thésée
Located only 30 minutes to the south of the Château de Chambord, La Confrérie des Vignerons de Oisly et Thésée was founded in 1961 in the heart of the Sologne wine region. The Vignerons de Oisly and Thésée have been specialists in top-class Touraine wine for over 50 years, bottling their wine on their own site.
They offer a full range of their own renowned wines and brands, as well as wines from other domains and Châteaux such as the Château de Vallagon. The Coopérative de Oisly et Thésée gained their reputation by producing Touraine Sauvignon wines, but they also make fruity red wines from a number of different varieties: Gamay, Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Côt-Malbec.
The Caves des Vins de Rabelais
The Cave des Vins de Rabelais was founded in 1989. This was a time when the Chinon winemakers wanted to join forces and create a cooperative, expanding and maximizing the sales potential of the biggest red appellation in the Loire Valley.
In the heart of a truly exceptional region this cellar offers distinct, identifiable wines which represent the wealth of Chinon terroir. Their emblematic wines such as the “Fauteuil Rouge”, launched in 2012, stand up to even the greatest wines. These wines are produced and aged in oak barrels for 12 months, and released to specialist wine cellars and restaurants.
The brand has also made a name for itself in the mass market, with its own labels such as Le Futreau, whose finely oaked red wines are a nod to the old boats which used to transport wine barrels along the Loire.[/one_half_last]
