Overview

Les Deux Tours is produced by Baron Patrick de Ladoucette in the Loire Valley on soils that are mainly limestone with some parcels of flint clay. Baron Patrick is often referred to as “The King of the Loire Valley,” not solely due to his aristocratic descent, but more so for his contribution to the worldwide recognition and acclaim of this appellation. These beautiful wines originate from a terroir that is known as the “Valley of the Kings,” which is located along the Loire River, the longest water way in France.
