The Loire Sauvignon Blanc Specialist
The quest to create the best Sauvignon Blanc through innovation and experimentation while embracing and respecting the values and spirit of the appellation is the philosophy of Villebois in a nutshell. The modernist approach discards dogmas and beliefs and is a guarantee of quality, a seal of confidence without ever replacing the notion of terroir and the intrinsic identity of the appellations.
“ A region of excellence, the Loire Valley offers the greatest diversity of Sauvignon Blanc styles and terroirs in the world. We explore and cherish this Valley with passion to present you its most beautiful gems in each of our bottles.”
Joost de Willebois

Our Loire Sauvignon Blanc
The adventure began in 2004 with the first wine produced being an IGP Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc from our vineyards in Mareuil sur Cher (the estate was then called La Chardoisie and it had been bought from Mr Marc Buchet that same year). The range was subsequently expanded with a Touraine Sauvignon Blanc and later a Vin de France Sauvignon Blanc. In 2008, under the leadership of Mr de Willebois, we established the first partnerships with winegrowers from Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Always in search of excellence, our range of wines is intended to reflect the best of the Loire. Like the intrepid river, our evolution ebbs and flows …
