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 Pays Nantais, the soils are predominantly volcanic (igneous) with top-soils of porous gneiss. This means the soils have a good drainage, which allows vines to thrive well in this wet climate.
