The first edition of the Loire Valley Wines Buyers’ Selection
Discover the results!
On June 23rd, 2021, a panel of buyers (sommeliers, retailers from all over the US) reviewed, tasted, and rated 293 Loire Valley wines currently available on the US market and imported in at least one state. The wines were blind tasted and rated out of 100 according to their organoleptic characteristics. The goal is to support importers in promoting their Loire Valley wine offer to trade & consumers. Thank you to the 50+ importers who participated.
