Domaine de la Plante d’Or


Philippe Loquineau

REGION: Loire Valley

Domaine de la Plante d'Or is a family-run property that is located on a restored 19th-century Sologne farm, in the middle of the vines in Cheverny in the Loire Valley. Pierre Loquineau took over the family estate back in 1981 and has carried out the viticulture and winemaking processes using traditional methods. His work has contributed to the outstanding reputation and fame of the AOC wines of Cour Cheverny and Cheverny. 

The estate makes wine from the Romarantin varietal which was once the favorite wine of the king of France Francis 1 in 1519. This varietal expresses the finest aspects of the terroir of Domaine de La Plante d’Or and produces a lively white wine, filled with mineral complexity, and has the potential of long aging.

Wine Region:

Loire Valley

Also known as Garden of France and Cradle of the French due to the slew of vineyards, vegetable farms, and fruit orchards in the region, the Loire Valley is right in the middle of the Loire river. The area is known for many kinds of fruity, crisp wines: rose, red, white, and sparkling. 

The region’s favorable climate – often a midpoint between the southern and northern French climes – it owes to the river, which is cool in springtime and possibly rainy during harvest season. Also, the temperatures of hot summers are similarly mitigated by the river and the breezes of the Atlantic Ocean. 

There are a number of wine regions similarly situated along the river Loire, such as the Atlantic’s Muscadet region, as well as Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre southeast of Orléans.
