Loire Valley Wine Regions Guide

Where Tradition Meets Innovation in the Garden of France's Wine Country


Last updated: February 25, 2024


Flowing over 1000km from central France west towards the Atlantic, the Loire Valley is a misunderstood region. For many consumers, it is Europe’s principal source of fresh and fruity Sauvignon Blanc, made in appellations that include Touraine, Pouilly-Fumé, and Sancerre. Yet the Loire is undoubtedly the most diverse and extensive of France’s classic wine zones. Such are the benefits of growing vines in an astonishingly varied landscape; there is a vast difference between Muscadet on the Atlantic coast and the pungent Cabernet Franc reds of Anjou. Much of the region is steeped in tradition, but at the same time, plenty of new quality-conscious producers are emerging in all the appellations. Welcome to the Garden of France.
