Loire Valley–The garden of France
The 634 mile Loire River spans from the central mountains of France to the coast in Nantes. Along the river (and its tributaries) you'll discover the enigmatic wines of the Loire Valley; famous for their high aromatic intensity and refreshing acidity. The region is quite diverse not only in climate from east to west, but also in the way wines are unique to each region. From Sancerre (Sauvingon Blanc) to Chinon (Cabernet Franc) to Muscadet (Melon) there is a world of wine to explore in the Loire.
