Pineau d’Aunis is a French grape variety mostly planted in the vineyard of the “Vallée de la Loire”.🇫🇷 It’s a vigorous and fertile vine, and depending on how it’s grown, its lifespan can easily exceed 80 years. It is one of the characteristic grape varieties of the Coteaux du Vendômois appellation, from which are produced the vins gris, typical of this region.🍷
For a long time considered as a low quality grape variety, it has come back in fashion since the 2000’s thanks to the care of passionate winegrowers who make very aromatic wines from it by limiting yields to concentrate its flavors. For its characteristic aromas, one often evokes raspberry and pepper.
