History The Pineau D'Aunis has been linked with the Loire valley since ancient times, and testimonies of 1183 confirm us how this cluster was called Pineau because of its similarity to the pine branch, triangular and serrated. The origin of the term Aunis is still a controversy that sees two currents of thought; The first hypothesis comes from the name of a small feud belonging to the Aquitaine Duchy, the second from a convent located in the Saumur area. Grape that, over the centuries, has seen the glories of glory alternate in dark times; His best times were in the Middle Ages, when King Henry the Plantageneto was an inestimable admirer, as did Henry III; It was even used as a gift of peace, for the end of the hundred-year war, between Charles VII and Philip the Good. It is true - however - that it is part of its notoriety to the colloquial abuse of the Pineau term, used equally for Chenin Blanc and Pinot Nero; Such a practice led slowly to the belief that it was a red berry variant of the noblest Chenin Blanc, a vine used in remarkable denominations of the Loire, but modern technologies, through DNA, have confirmed its total extraneousness.
Features wine While a red wine grape, Pineau d'Aunis is often treated like Pinot noir and used to make rosé and white wines in both still and sparkling wine styles.
