Visiting Vouvray region, Loire Valley, France

This travel guide will help you plan your stay and organize a wine tasting in some of the best wineries nearby.

The Vouvray wine region is located on the north bank of the river Loire, less than 10 minutes from the city center of Tours. Vouvray is certainly one of the most famous appellations of white Loire wines (along with Sancerre). Several dozen Vouvray wineries will welcome you for a wine tasting tour in their troglodyte cellars. Sparkling, dry, sweet, off-dry : the wines of Vouvray come in as many variations to the delight of Chenin Blanc lovers. The development of the Vouvray wine region is attributed to Saint Martin, who, according to a local legend introduced wine making in the Loire Valley. That was 1500 years ago!
