Loire Valley

France

Description

The picturesque Loire Valley with its royal history and regal châteaux scattered throughout the landscape is home to some of France's favourite demi-sec wines. Wide variations in climate and soil type, not to mention the differing ideals and traditions of wine makers across the region give enthusiasts of this valley a wide selection of wine styles from which to choose from.

Begining in the West with the fabled use of Melon de Bourgogne in the Sèvre-et-Maine region, East towards the sweet whites and rosés of Anjou-Saumur and the luscious Chenin Blancs to be found in Vouvray, The Loire Valley is a French gem crying out to be explored.
