Country: France

Quincy is a wine appellation that lies in the beautiful Loire Valley that has sand and gravel soils rather than the limestone of nearby Sancerre. It extends through the communes of Brinay and Quincy.
The only permitted grape variety is Sauvignon Blanc and the wines made here tend to have a higher acidity than their better known neighbours. The permitted yields are quite high at 60 hl/ha.
A good example of the wines made here is that of Domaine Adele Rouze, a young winemaker showing a lot of potential.
