Drink Vouvray, not Champagne!

The Touraine and surrounding appellations in the Loire Valley produce a lot of sparkling wine. Within France appellations such as Vouvray are well known and available everywhere from supermarkets to high end restaurants. Increasingly they are being seen as a real challenge to Champagne. The Loire Valley sparkling wines are competitively priced at around €10 a bottle, and the quality is getting better every year. At the moment they are exceptionally good value, but almost no one outside of France has realised it. 90% of sparkling Loire Valley wines are sold in France.

If you would like to get some of this excellent wine before the rest of the world discovers it, email us and we will design an itinerary that includes a visit to a Vouvray or Touraine winemaker.
