At the beginning of December, the book La Loire et ses vins, 2,000 ans d’histoires et de commerce was published, which recounts twenty centuries of a relationship which, via commercial transport, gave both of them a certain identity.

Although Burgundy and Bordeaux looked at the history of their vineyard very early on, never before had a history of the Loire Valley vineyard been written. It is done in this book, punctuated with numerous illustrations, which takes us on a historic stroll along the Loire, to discover its wines, its winegrowers and its merchants, from Sancerre to the Nantes region, passing by Orléanais, Touraine and Anjou. Through this unprecedented research work which goes from Roman Gaul to the phylloxera crisis, the primordial role of the river in the evolution of Loire appellations is thus demonstrated.

The author:

Angevin historian Emmanuel Brouard is already the author of works on the inland waterways of the Loire and a thesis on the Anjou Valley. For two years, he immersed himself in the archives but also in the many local contributions from Puy-en-Velay to Nantes. What emerged was a nearly 200-page narrative that spans two millennia.
