The Loire valley is longest and probably the most diverse wine region of France. In the East, Sancerre and Quincy are home to spectacular Sauvignon Blanc. In the Touraine area (Chinon, Bourgeuil), Cabernet Franc deliver complex wines. The Chenin Blanc grape is declined in dry and sweet in appellations such as Coteaux du Layon or Quart de Chaume. Further west, near the Atlantic coast, we discover the Muscadet grape and wine, and Gros Plant perfect match to the local seafood. The class includes a tasting of 8 wines, cheese and crackers during the tasting and a plate of French appetizers at the end of the presentationFor more information and purchase tickets, please go to
