Anjou Wine - Buy Wine from the Anjou Region of France
Anjou, named after its principal town Angers, is 75 kilometres inland from Nantes on the north bank of La Loire. Here, Marc Angeli of Ferme de la Sansonnière is a passionate advocate of natural wine production and ardent critic of the French government’s failure to curb the widespread deployment of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. In protest at their inaction Marc has elected to ignore official wine classification and labels his wines as ‘Produits de France’, regardless of their actual provenance.
Anjou has documentation showing the production of wine in the 4th Century AD. It was the birthplace of Henry II, and in the Middle Ages its vines were some of France’s most highly regarded. The region received Appellation Controlee status in 1950 and now covers over 69,000 acres of land.
