Gamay, Pinot Noir
Founded in 1950, Cave Saint Verny is the sole co-operative in Puy-de-Dôme. It takes its name from Saint-Verny, the 15-year-old son of a wine grower who met his untimely death in 1287 as a result of persecution for his faith. Miracles were said to have happened in the presence of the young martyr’s body. With resident oenologist Olivier Mignard at the helm, the cave sources grapes from 53 communes with 115 growers who each have a holding of less than 2ha. The vineyards are mostly planted to Gamay and Pinot Noir, which are historically blended in the Auvergne. Cave Saint-Verny is an excellent ambassador for the Côtes d’Auvergne and their objective is to give the region the wider recognition it deserves.
