Cour-Cheverny

Named after the commune of the same name, the appellation in the Département of Loir-et-Cher covers almost 50 hectares of vineyards in 11 communes south of the city of Blois on the left bank of the Loire. It partly overlaps with the much larger Cheverny area. The straw-yellow white wine is made from the autochthonous grape variety Romorantin. According to legend, the vine was planted by King François I. (1494-1547), when he resided in the eponymous castle Romorantin.
