The Château Moncontour winery is one of the oldest of the Loire Valley. It was created around the 4th century. Since the tenth century, caves have been excavated in the cliffs to vinify and preserve its wine. The total surface of the vineyards is 140 hectares (capable of producing one million bottles), spread out over several soil types within the Vouvray and Touraine appellations nearby. This makes this estate one of the biggest of the Loire Valley.
