The Loire Valley is France’s most diverse wine region, producing excellent and affordable wines in every style. Although best known for crisp dry white wines, including definitive examples of Sauvignon Blanc and the unique seaside wines of Muscadet, and the rich aromatic white wines made from Chenin Blanc, the Loire Valley also produces fruity red wines from Pinot Noir and Gamay and earthy red wines from Cabernet Franc and Malbec. In addition, there are dry and off-dry rosé, elegant sparkling wines and luscious sweet wines.
The sweet wines of the Loire Valley are among the world’s best. They are affordable luxury — dessert in a bottle — that further demonstrate the amazing versatility of Chenin Blanc.
