Alphonse Mellot

The Alphonse Mellot winery stands out for its unique approach to winemaking and its commitment to preserving the environment.

Located in the heart of the picturesque Loire Valley, Alphonse Mellot is a family-run winery with a long tradition of producing exceptional wines. For over 500 years and 26 generations, the Mellot family has honed their craft and earned a reputation as the benchmark for Sauvignon Blanc production in the region.

The winery's vineyards are situated on the steep slopes of the Loire hills. The terroir is unique and consists of sandy and clay soils mixed with marine fossils, giving the wines a pronounced mineral character.

The Alphonse Mellot winery differs from other wineries in its wine production method, which preserves the natural characteristics of the grapes and terroir. The grapes are harvested by hand and only natural yeasts are used for fermentation. The wines are aged in carefully selected oak barrels that match the character of the wine and the vintage.

One of the company's best-known wines is Sancerre La Moussière, made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in a particular vineyard in the Sancerre appellation. This wine has complex aromas of white flowers, citrus, and minerality, as well as crisp, refreshing acidity.

The company's commitment to sustainability is also evident, as they cultivate their vineyards using organic and biodynamic methods to preserve the biodiversity of the surrounding ecosystem.

The Alphonse Mellot winery not only produces exceptional wines but also promotes the region and its heritage. Various cultural events, such as concerts and exhibitions of local artists and musicians, are held here.
