Why study the wines of the Loire Valley?
The Loire is France’s :
- 1st white wine region - 2nd largest for sparkling wines - 3rd largest overall producer of AOC wines in France... The Loire Valley is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world. Dry and sweet. Still and sparkling. White and red. The Loire has it all.
Add in the flair of a new and exciting generation of winemakers who are pushing the envelope and this region is poised to take its rightful place at the centre of the wine world.
