Association des Vins d’Abbayes

Wines made in privately owned Abbies add value to cultural and viticultural history. Monastic wines are made today from sites that were cultivated by Cistercian, Chatreux and Benedictan monks from the twelfth century.

Heritage listed wine Abbeys are in the Champagne, Burgundy, Loire Valley, Jura, Lanquedoc, Rhone Valley and Provence, as well as Porto.
