Les Athletes du Vin is a négociant project focused on producing great value typical wines from the Loire Valley. The idea was conceived by a group of French winemakers called Vini Be Good who work together to distribute their wines in France. The wines are vinified by various members of the Vini Be Good network using their own grapes or grapes purchased from friends and neighbours in the Loire.
The labels for Les Athletes du Vin are drawings by French artist, illustrator, and cartoonist Michel Tolmer who has been the unofficial lead artist of the French natural wine movement since the 1990s.
These wines represent the wide range of interesting wines available from throughout the Loire with 3 reds and 3 whites. Each mixed case includes a single bottle of each of these wines:
Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Chardonnay IGP Val de Loire 2018
Mumu Chardonnay Vin de France – A blend of Chardonnay and Melon de Bourgogne
Pineau d’Aunis Vin de France 2018
