The beautiful banks of the Loire Valley in Northeastern France are adorned with Disneyesque castles, quaint villages and vineyards as far as the eye can see. The region is responsible for some of France's most famous wines, most notably Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. These outstanding examples of Sauvignon Blanc have become a staple on restaurant wine lists across the world.

François Le Saint winery is a family-owned estate founded in 1749, now run by 10th generation descendants. They farm 56 hectares of land and are certified both organic and biodynamic. Respect for their terroir and for the land of their ancestors is of utmost importance. Their flinty, clay and Kimmeridgian marl soils are ideal for growing quality Sauvignon Blanc, which is most of their production. Mostly conducted by hand, traditional techniques are used to farm the land and in the winery.

Francois Le Saint's wines have a beautiful, stony minerality, typical of Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc. They are incredibly well-crafted wines, displaying elegance and an amazing balance between richness and freshness.
