Discovering The Loire Valley: White Wines Of The Loire
The Loire Valley is home to some of the most refreshing and invigorating white wines in France. With this bundle we invite you to visit 3 unique appellations across the region and learn about different grapes and styles it can produce.
We will start with world-famous Sancerre, where Sauvignon Blanc is the King. These limestone and clay hills with an extreme continental climate help to make finer and more complex Sauvignon than anywhere in the world.
We will travel to steep banks of Savennieres where some of the most notable winegrowers from Anjou produce dry, intense and rich Chenin Blanc.
We will end our journey in small appellation called Cour-Cheverny which specialises on producing sharp and intense wines from the the rare indigenous grape Romorantin.
