history
The Cave des Producteurs de Vouvray was created in 1953, at the initiative of a small group of wine growers. The initial project was to pool their resources and create a production tool able to make wines in sufficient volume to penetrate new markets, at the same time preserving a high level of quality which was essential to the commercial development of Vouvray wines, and more particularly the sparkling wines. Sixty years later, the adventure continues with 30 wine growers, who work together 400 ha of vineyards, distributed over the whole Vouvray Appellation area.
