Wines of the Legendary Loire Valley of France

The Loire River Valley is a vast basin with origins in central France that run to the northwest coast.  It spans dozens of wine appelations, from the saline white Muscadet on the coast to the crisp and minerally white Sancerre and Pouilly Fume near the headwaters south of Paris, as well as beloved and affordable reds like the calcium rich Chinon and soft and plush Anjou Rouge.  We taste these and more in this fantastic wine tour of France’s heartland.
