The wines of the Loire Valley

the greatest diversity of wines in the world

The national and international recognition of the Loire Valley wines continues to grow. The classification of the Loire Valley as a world heritage by Unesco is based in part on the unique landscapes crafted for centuries by passionate winegrowers, who preserve the best of their region.

In the Sud Val de Loire, the vineyard tourist route – which can be done on foot, by car or by bike – is a unique experience, marked out by areas labelled ‘Caves touristiques‘, or Tourist wine cellars, where the best welcome is reserved for you, so you can get to know the 8 PDOs found in our region. Find out about the work of  winemaker, and taste wines with a thousand and one flavours, in a magnificent environment.

THE SUD VAL DE LOIRE

SO PROUD OF ITS WINES

Red or white? No wrong answer here, it’s a matter of taste! The power of the Cabernet bouquet, the lightness of the Gamay or the aromas of Sauvignon Blanc.

The wines of the Loire Valley are very diverse, due largely to the soil and climate. The Loire Valley alone is the home to Touraine and Touraine Chenonceaux PDO, Cheverny PDO, Touraine Oisly PDO and Valençay PDO.

AU CHATEAU DE CHENONCEAU

WITH THE TOURAINE PDO WINE SYNDICATE

Stroll through the illuminated gardens of the Château de Chenonceau, drink in hand, soothed by the music of Arcangelo Corelli.

It is the opportunity to appreciate the very young Touraine Chenonceaux appellation, in a majestic setting.

The 2019 edition saw the preview opening of a gourmet restaurant offering food and wine pairings created for the occasion by Michelin-starred chef Christophe Canati and the winegrowers. Lover of his region, Christophe Canati, put local wines and produce in the spotlight during this grand evening.

An event is staged each year by the Touraine Wine Syndicate.
