Come and join us to discover the French Wines from the most famous rivers!
The Loire valley is the heart of France, famous for its magnificent Châteaux and great wines of many styles: Muscadet, Vouvray, Côteaux du Layon, Pouilly fumé or Sancerre…. The popularity of Loire Valley wines with sommeliers and wine writers has been growing steadily for the last ten years, but the wines were already well-known of kings and queens of Europe in the Middle Ages.
The Rhône valley is the second largest French wine region after Bordeaux. It is home of the famous Tavel rosé, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Hermitage, Condrieu, or Côte Rôtie. The tasting will illustrate the differences between wines of Northern and Southern Rhône and the relative impact of soils, topography, climate and grape varieties into the wine styles.
