Wine of IGP Val de Loire appellation
Since August 2009, the Vins de Pays enjoy an official designation of quality, recognized at European level: The Indication Géographique Protégée – IGP (Protected Geographical Indication - PGI). 

The Vins de Pays category, like the AOCs and the Vins de France (formerly Vins de Table), is tightly controlled, by EU wine regulations and by precise specifications setting out the conditions of production. 

Like the AOCs, there are specific rules for production. However the option of being able to use different grape varieties also allows wine producers to express their creativity and make original wines. 

Compared to the Vins de France, the IGPs offer the consumer a guarantee of origin, as shown by the inclusion of the origin name, and a guarantee of quality due to their compliance with specifications and the associated controls (checking of grape varieties planted, yields, etc. and analytical and organoleptic testing). 

The family of the French Vins de Pays includes the "Vins de Pays du Val de Loire" regional designation, which spans 14 départements in the Loire Valley wine basin: Allier, Cher, Indre, Indre-et-Loire, Loir-et-Cher, Loire-Atlantique, Loiret, Maine-et-Loire, Nièvre, Puy-de-Dôme, Sarthe, Deux-Sèvres, Vendée and Vienne. 

Since their creation in 1981, the Vins de Pays de Loire  have focused on the production of quality wine and the professionalization of its growers and producers. With its 1,000 wine growers, 15 or so cooperatives, and about a hundred négociants, the IGP Val de Loire has a real economic weight within the Loire Valley Basin wine producing region.  

Due to its northern location and mild climate, the IGP Val de Loire wines display freshness, vivacity and finesse. 

The grapes planted in the Vins de Pays du Val de Loire-IGP area are traditional and well suited to the diversity of climates and soils encountered in this vast region. 

The white varieties, which are mainly vinified dry, typically display delicate fruity and floral aromas. The rosés are light, refreshing and crisp, while the light-structured, and occasionally full-bodied, red wines show a soft character.
