The Alliance Loire
About the Winery
The Alliance Loire is the epitome of modern co-operatives. It is situated in Saint Cyr-en-Bourg a few kilometres south of the town of Saumur. The Alliance is responsible for the marketing and sales of 8 different wineries, including the Cave de Saumur which was established in 1957 with about 40 growers. Today, it has grown to nearly 300 members, farming 1800 hectares of vineyards, scattered over 4000 plots. Respect for the environment and terroir is positively encouraged with extra support for members wishing to convert to organic practices. Today, Marc Bonnin heads up this co-operative.
