The Loire vineyards extend over 70,000 hectares along the river for more than 100 km. They thus form the Loire Valley, a vast area of wine production in France bringing together several wine regions. Production volumes give 4 million hectoliters from the four production regions which are Nantes, Anjou, Touraine and Center. These regions produce dry, semi-dry, sweet and even sweet white wines like Chardonnay, Sauvignon or Chenin Blanc. But also mostly red wines such as cabernet, pinot noir, ect and rosé wines; there are also many sparkling wines.
