INDEPENDENT WINE GROWERS OF THE LOIRE VALLEY

In 2018, for the very 1st time, the Pays de la Loire Independent Winegrowers' Federation came up with the new and exciting idea of adding a collective stand to the Salon des Vins de Loire, bringing together some fifteen independent wine-growers from the Pays de la Loire, with a focus on the Federation itself.

This year, not only is it back once again but it has been extended to include other regions for a representation of the entire Loire Valley!

This means that 30 independent wine growers from the Loire Valley will be coming together on a collective stand (Grand Palais – F G – 202)

For an ever more comprehensive offer, the Salon des Vins de Loire is presenting the Winegrowers' Route Independents from the Loire Valley. This route gives you the chance to meet the independent winemakers in attendance on the collective stand, but also those who are present at the trade show on their own stand. You can find them thanks to the logo affixed on the map of the Trade Show, as well as on the signs of the relevant winegrowers.
