Savennières is a commune in the Maine-et-Loire department in western France.
It lies near the Loire River south west of Angers and is best known for its production of highly-rated white wine.
With production predominantly centred around the Chenin blanc grape, it is famed for its particularly long-lasting dry white wine comparable to that of Vouvray.
