David Levin, owner of The Capital Hotel in London, started growing his own grapes in the Loire Valley, France in 1985 to produce his own private label wines for his luxury hotels and restaurants. David Levin and his Australian Wife Lynne are committed to producing a world class Sauvignon Blanc in the Loire Valley. The Levin Winery was shipped to France in its entirety from Australia together with a team of engineers who specialized in its design and assembly.
The Levin vineyards are located in three sites some 15 to 20 km apart in Bourré Val du Cher, Oisly and Choissy and cover some 28 hectares. This site selection began with the original purchase some 26 years ago of land by David Levin who has continued to select the very best land available for growing vines. New fields are planted with the best quality root stocks and experimental clones while the 25-30 year old vineyards are retrained to adopt the organic methods.
Levin is a unique combination of French soil and grapes, Australian passion and South African expertise. These organic wines represent modern thinking in a very traditional region.
The Chardonnay/Sauvignon is one of the best examples of this blend we've tasted and their Sauvignon Blanc is outstanding.
