CHENIN BLANC WINE TOUR
LOIRE VALLEY CHENIN TOUR
CHENIN BLANC WINE PROGRAM
SAUMUR it's a perfect place to learn about CHENIN BLANC, often called Pineau de La Loire,
CHENIN is the emblematic grape of the middle Loire, where it has been grown for centuries and arrived in Loire valley by St Martin de Tours around 370 AD
Which produces still, sparkling, semi-dry, mellow or liqueur wines.
This tour concentrates on visits to Savennières, Coteaux du layon, Saumur, Chinon, Vouvray, Montlouis sur Loire,... all on the River Loire and where the appellation rules dictate that Chenin Blanc is the only white grape grown.
During your WINE CHENIN PROGRAM several tastings you will be able to experience the full range of Chenin wines at a range of producers from cooperative ventures to small family wineries. You will be astounded by the range and quality of the wine produced in the Loire Valley, wines that can be kept for years, if you can resist the temptation to drink them earlier.
There will be plenty of opportunities to buy wine. This is one tour where it is definitely better to be driven than to drive !
