Country: France

The Romorantin grape has grown in the Loire Valley since the sixteenth century. It makes crisp, acidic, minerally white wines. The best known wines are from the Cour-Cheverny wine appellation which is north east of Tours. The grape is also used as a minor element of some wines of Valencay which adjoins the Touraine appellation on its south east border.
