The temperate climate, so conducive to vine growing in the Touraine, is also to be undiminished in the Ridellois : Situated at the confluence of the Indre and the Loire rivers, this region enjoys
both a mild climate and clay mised with sand soils, based on limestone formations - ideal conditions. Wine has been grown here since ancient time, as shown by the Gallo-Roman wine press found un
Cheillé in 1946.
Drawing from their flavours from the perfect conditions of the Ridellois, Azay-le-Rideau wines are mostly dry and semi-dry. The appellation includes 6 towns : Azay-le-Rideau, Cheillé,
Lignières-de-Touraine, Rivarennes, Saché and Vallères.
