Loire Valley

The stunning Loire and its wines

Wines from the Loire are typically refreshing, elegant, vibrant and relatively affordable, but make no mistake they are some of the worlds best. Famous for electric sparkling wine, benchmark Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre, arguably the greatest expressions of Chenin Blanc from Anjou and beautifully restrained Cabernet Franc from Saumur, this is a heaven for lovers of the finer things in life. Other top varieties include Melon de Bourgogne and Pinot Noir.
