The quintessence of Charentes wine, a natural blend of sea and land. These clear, bright, lively wines are made from the traditional grape varieties of Colombard and Ugni Blanc, and sometimes though more rarely, from aromatic grapes such as Sauvignon, Chenin and Chardonnay.

"Blanc Marine" wines should be drunk young and cool, as an aperitif, or as a delicious accompaniment for fish, seafood, white meats or goat cheese.

Ces vins clairs, lumineux, animés sont faits à partir des variétés traditionnelles de raisin de Colombard et d'Ugni Blanc, et parfois à partir de raisins aromatiques tels que Sauvignon, Chenin et Chardonnay.

Les vins "Blanc Marine" devraient être bus jeunes et frais à l'apéritif ou comme délicieux accompagnement   des poissons, fruits de mer,  viandes blanches ou fromage de chèvre.

Bacchus, ancient Greek and Roman god of wine and revelry, in creating the soil of the Charentes, undoubtedly wanted to make people envious! Here, in the country of the Atlantic Coast Land, there is truly land well designed to produce wines for feasts: generous sun for ripening the vine, the sea spray to forge the character of the grape and a ground just hardy enough to rough out its strength; the wines of the Charentes Country are the happy fruits of this Atlantic Coast Land! In the past, the wine growers of the Charentes processed their products into spirits. Today, they have happily rediscovered wine growing for wine production. Helped along by all the latest techniques of wine production, the production of white, rosé and red wine meets strict quality criteria defined by the Wine Tasting Commission, in order to obtain the geographical denomination: Vin de Pays Charentais.
