Anjou-Villages is a red wine appellation in the Loire Valley region of France which is a sub-appellation of the broader Anjou appellation. The appellation was created in November 1991.
There are 151 communes entitled to use the Anjou appellation, however only 46 of these can use the higher level Anjou-Village designation and can append the word villages in a similar way to some villages in the Rhone. The most common grape used here is Cabernet Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon also being permitted.
