WELCOME AT ERIC LOUIS ESTATE

Eric Louis

Winemaker in Sancerre since 1860

Located in the south-east of Sancerre, we are the fourth generation to cultivate with love, passion and respect for nature, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir on 35 hectares.  Our Wine Estate carries a wide range of wines from Centre Loire appellations: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Menetou-Salon, Quincy, Reuilly, Châteaumeillant… and also varietal wines under the Vin de France category.

A Sancerre Estate in organic conversion

Certified “High Environmental Value”, we switched to Organic Farming in 2020 for a certification in 2023 to preserve biodiversity and highlight each terroir specificity in our wines. These certifications recognize long-standing work in favour of nature. This passion for terroir marks a range of refined, precise and mineral wines where the fruity expression is always kept.

Rooted in Sancerre

Eric Louis took over the winery in 1995 with 6 hectares of vines spread over Sancerre slopes overlooking the Loire in Thauvenay, Ménétréol sous Sancerre and Vinon, villages renowned for their predominantly flint soils. Today, the vineyard covers 35 hectares of Sancerre appellation and 1.5 hectare of Quincy appellation.
