About Remy Pannier:

Rémy Pannier is the Loire Valley's single largest wine producer, accounting for about 15% of all Loire Valley wine production, with markets in over 40 countries worldwide. In the early 1990s, Rémy Pannier, which had long operated as a négoçiant concern, moved toward becoming a producer. Since 2002, Remy Pannier has been directly owned by its alliance of grape growers and vineyard owners.

Rémy Pannier has been identified with premium quality Loire Valley wines since 1885, when it was founded by François Rémy, who developed it into a prosperous local négoçiant concern, buying, blending, bottling and selling Loire Valley wines. François was succeeded by his son, Louis, whose wife, Marie Pannier, provided the second part of the company’s name. Louis, in turn, was succeeded by his son Maurice, an engaging, adventurous man who is credited with generating a widespread following for Rémy Pannier wines in France and the development of new markets abroad. Maurice’s heirs retained a stake in the company until selling it in early 2002.

Rémy Pannier’s headquarters are located at St.-Hilaire-St.-Florent near Saumur on the banks of the Thouet, a tributary of the Loire. Facilities include eight miles of underground cellars carved out from the chalk hills, an ideal environment for storing wine. Lead winemaker Karine Huibant, assisted by four full-time laboratory staff, oversees winemaking.
