Les Vignerons de Saint-Pourcain

Winemakers of Saint-Pourcain

You’d be forgiven if you couldn’t put your finger on the map of France and point out Saint Pourcain. It sits south of Loire and west of Macon. The vineyards sit on the banks of the river Allier, a main tributary to the Loire but the landscape and varieties are matched with Burgundy. It’s actually one of France’s oldest regions and can claim its lineage back to Roman times. The vineyards sit at the same latitude as Macon and share the same desired south-east facing exposition.
