Sancerre from Domaine Henri Bourgeois

Sauvignon blanc is grown around the world today but from the beginning it was Sancerre in the upper Loire Valley that made this grape famous. We have visited the Domaine Henri Bourgeois, a well-known family in the Sancerre appellation. Their home is in the small village of Chavignol.

Chavignol is only a few kilometres from the town of Sancerre, which is very beautiful situated on a hilltop, surrounded by sauvignon blanc vineyards. And maybe some pinot noir also, because the red wines from Sancerre are actually becoming more and more popular.

Domaine Bourgeois has expanded its operations and now also makes wine in New Zealand.

And guess with which grapes?
