The Saint-Pourçain area is located on the slopes of an old volcanic mountain range in the Auvergne region of central France. Although it’s called a Loire Valley wine (The Loire river starts there), Saint-Pourçain in reality is closer to the Burgundy/Beaujolais area. Husband Jean-Pierre, wife Corinne and son Damien work at the estate that has been owned by the Corinne’s family since the beginning of the 20th century. The property makes red, white and rose wine on 45 acres of granite and limestone soils.
