How many wineries in Vouvray, Loire Valley, France?
Answer : over 160
It's a lot. Especially for a "small" appellation like Vouvray which covers around 2,000 hectares (imagine a rectangle of 2x4 miles ).
The Vouvray appellation spreads across 8 villages, all located on the north bank of the Loire, a few miles east of Tours, the capital city of the Loire Valley.
Among these villages, 3 are reckoned to produce the best Vouvray wines : Rochecorbon, Vernou sur Brenne and, of course, Vouvray which gave its name to the appellation.
