Wine of Menetou-Salon appellation
Menetou-Salon is a vineyard region in the Loire, located to the northeast of Bourges. It is rooted in a soil made up of calcareous sediments. Classified an AOC by a decree of 23 January 1959, it includes the communes of Aubinges, Humbligny, Menetou-Salon, Morogues, Parassy, Pigny, Quantilly, Saint-Céols, Soulangis and Vignoux-sous-les-Aix. The vineyards of Menetou-Salon produce white wines from the Sauvignon Blanc, and red and rosé wines from the Pinot Noir, with a total annual production of 26,000 hectolitres. 

According to old writings, Menetou-Salon wine was one of the finest adornments on the stately table of silversmith, Jacques Coeur, who acquired the seigniory of Menetou in 1450. They even say that when Charles VII's favourite, Agnès Sorel, used to come to the Château to rest, she particularly appreciated the wine of the "Clos de la Dame". Menetou-Salon has had a wine growers' union since 1890 and its vineyards today cover 487 hectares. 

The Menetou-Salon harvest takes place between the last week of September and the second half of October, depending on the year. In the Centre-Loire vineyards, 80% of the grapes are picked mechanically which has led to a modernization of the harvest reception facilities in order to process the grapes between the harvesting and the pressing as quickly as possible. Harvesting by hand is of course still practiced, especially for the red grapes. The Menetou-Salon appellation is particularly interesting when represented by quality wine producers such as Domaine Henry Pellé.
