Loire Valley stretches from Atlantic coast near Nantes to the inland Auvergne in the middle of the country. This wine region in western France plays a major role in terms of both quantity and quality of the national total output. The production is predominately driven by white wines using Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Melon de Bourgogne.

The large variety of soils in the Loire Valley is characterised by diverse natural environments. This region can be sub-divided in four climates, from western coastal regions to inlands - Pays Nantais / Anjou-Saumur / Touraine / Central Vineyards. In Touraine, the basement is composed of tufa chalk, flint, and clays from the Paris Basin. The geological diversity continues on the banks of the Loire and Vienne, made up of sands and gravels rolled by the streams and deposited over time.
