Loire Valley Wines
Our guesthouse is situated right in the middle of a wine growing area. Discover Chinon AOC wines, the red variety being Cabernet Franc, the white grapes are Chenin Blanc. Slightly further afield, the wine growing areas of Touraine, Bourgueil, Vouvray, Montlouis and Saumur offer even more choice, most famous amongst them are probably the sparkling wines, whose taste and quality are only surpassed by those of the Champagne.
Take a tour through the cellars of the local wine growers, taste some wine and let the wine makers tell you everything about their wines and the "terroir". Throughout the year there are also numerous festivals centred around the theme of wine.
We are happy to help you arrange one or several visits for a wine tasting. Below are three of our favorites in the area:
Book your Tastings directly at Vineyards with Rue des Vignerons
Rue des Vignerons is a new concept that allows you to book your tastings, but also vineyard visits and cellar tours directly with the winegrowers. As ambassadors of this site we are happy to help you make the best choice.
