Maison Foucher was founded in 1921 with amission to craft classic expressions of Loire Valley appellations at exceptional values. In 2009, the Foucher family brought on Jean Mounard as a new partner. Jean was a pioneer of the production of small batch wines from selected plots in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and Saumur-Champigny, some of which are now farmed organically.
