The Loire Valley is the longest wild river in France and along its banks lay some of our favourite vineyards. Whites run the gamut. From steely, mineral Muscadet, to the austere Chenin Blanc found in Savennieres to ripe, demi-sec examples from Vouvray. You can also find the world's most profound Sauvignon Blanc in the village of Chavignol near Sancerre and local oddities like Romorantin and Menu Pineau. There are also some of the most charming, food-friendly red wines you'll find. From age worthy Cabernet Franc from Chinon and Saumur, to wonderfully drinkable Gamay and Grolleau and the peppery, utterly unique Pinot d'Aunis.
