The Cheverny appellation area lies on the left bank of the Loire River, near the city of Blois. It is boarded on the east and south-east by forests and hills, including the famous Sologne forest. On the South East, the limit of the vineyard follows the Bievre River. Declared as an AOP in March 1993, the appellation spreads on 550 hectares of land. Yet existing in the medieval period, the vineyard lying between the Loire River and the Sologne forest was of great interest for King François the first. François the First was an audacious man as long as wine was concerned. And each of his estates had its own vineyard. He once decided that wines were to be produced around his castles. That is why, in 1519, on royal edit, 80 000 vine plants were moved from Burgundy to be planted around Cheverny. Very dynamic, the Cheverny vineyard starts trading the wines from the Century 15th and reach fame and a good reputation very quickly for the quality of its white wines, ensuring a fast development of the sales both in the country and abroad along the centuries. Cheverny as an AOP produces white and red wines, delicate and fruity, loved for their quality and very in fashion today because of their tender and cheerful character.
