Buy wines from Loire Valley, France

With a wide diversity of soil types and a climate that ranges from oceanic to continental to slightly mountainous, the Loire Valley is France's third most important winegrowing region. It encompasses several subregions – the Nantes or Muscadet subregion, Anjou, Touraine and Saumurois – and produces red, white and rosé wines of unequalled quality. There are some real marvels on offer, and nothing beats a good shellfish platter accompanied by a Loire Valley white with sweet apricot flavours, or a plate of meat matched with a rich, rounded Anjou red – not to mention the sparkling wines, produced by the Champagne method much appreciated in the region, which show themselves to best advantage with a desert. They say there's nothing better in life than a good bottle of wine in a Loire Valley restaurant. Want to put the theory to the test?
