Quincy is a village located in the east of the Loire wine region. It gained its appellation for dry white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc in 1936, just a few months before Sancerre. Situated around the town of Bourges, the Quincy vineyards sit on a plateau overlooking the River Cher, a tributary of the Loire River. The vines benefit from a continental climate, experiencing a drier and warmer growing season than that further downstream towards the Atlantic Ocean. However the risk of frost can be significant and a handful of producers have collectively installed wind turbines in the region to help to reduce the occurrence. The climate is nevertheless still relatively cool, so the grapes require an extended hang-time in order to reach full ripeness. This slow and gradual maturation of the berries leads to the development of greater complexity in the wine. The grapes for this wine come from vines grown in limestone soils, which impart elegance to the wine. The vineyard soil is managed sustainably, with respect for the environment and biodiversity.

This family-owned winery is the venture of Joost and Miguela de Willebois, who are descendants from an old French family, established in the Netherlands since the 19th century (where the V became a W). Passionate about French culture and the Loire
Valley, Joost and Miguela settled in Touraine in 1996, after being enchanted by Loire Sauvignon Blanc. They cultivate a range of terroirs across appellations within the Loire Valley, combining modern techniques, innovation and experimentation, with respect
for the soils and the terroir. They fully believe that by being as close to nature as possible, they can capture the soul of the land. Patrice Merceron, winemaker and agricultural engineer, joined in 2014 and guides a team of dedicated winegrowers and
winemakers to produce stunning Sauvignon Blanc wines, which reflect the nuances of the Loire Valley.
