Rochecorbon is one of the 7 communes that have the right to claim the Vouvray area of AOC. The steep slopes hide some 300 ha of vines. The Chenin grape, combined with clay-limestone soils, produces tranquil wines and fine bubbles rich in typicity and diversity. Conserved in tufa cellars dug in the rock, Rochecorbon wines can keep for more than a century, delivering a golden nectar with incomparable perfumes and flavours. “At Vouvray the name, at Rochecorbon, renown.” (Rabelais)
