There are any number of opportunities to sample the delights of the wines produced in the Loire Valley.

 

bottles of Loire Valley wines for tasting

 

  • Visit one of the Maisons du vins' of the region - you'll find them at Nantes, Angers, Saumur and Tours. They are open all the year round, each with a selection of over seventy wines which have been hand-picked from about forty appellations of the Loire Valley. You can sample many of the vintages with no obligation to buy.

 

  • Visit one of the larger 'Cave de Producteurs' such as the excellent ones at Vouvray and Montlouis-sur-Loire.

 

  • Visit an independent producer's tasting room on his property. The photograph above is of our personal favourite.
