The land surrounding what we know as Sancerre was undoubtedly occupied by the Roman Empire. It is possible to think that there was an oppidum on the rock of Sancerre and that the ancient urban core overextended to Saint Thibault’ known as “Gortona” at this time. Archaeologists have found remains of Roman villas and Roman ruins in the area. The Loire river crossed by a bridge has made this area a favorable market place. Gortona became then a farming village and then a wine-growing village, hence the origin of the name.
