The Loire Valley is France’s most iconic wine region, producing exemplary wines in every style. The popularity of Loire Valley wines has been growing steadily due to their huge variety. The excellent value and refreshing acidity makes for the perfect contemporary taste.
The Loire Valley events will be focused on Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, and Crémant de Loire.
The famous Sauvignon Blanc grape originates from the heart of the Loire Valley with the appellation of Touraine. Think lemony, zesty wines which are great with white meats, creamy sauces, salads and fish.
Muscadet, known by some as the best wine to go with fish and all seafood.
The bright, fresh and fruity Rosé is primarily from Anjou. Amazing match with all kinds of desserts and fruit salads, and even most Asian food.
Finally Crémant de Loire, will quite frankly knock your socks off compared to Prosecco. Made from the traditional method, but for a more moderate price (usually around £10-£15). It’s an amazing French sparkling wine which the Loire has really mastered over the years.
