King François I introduced the Romorantin in 1519. Under royal decision 80 000 vine stocks were transplanted from Burgundy to his mother’s castle in the town of Romorantin. After being planted in divers wine-growing areas of our region, the Romorantin found its terroir of preference around our village, to become the exclusive grape variety for the Cour-Cheverny appellation.
