Loire Valley

Did you know that the Sauvignon Blanc vineyards of Menetou-Salon, Reuilly, and Quincy are all grown on Kimmeridgean marl? Or that one of the longest-lived white wines in the world is Savennieres? Are you familiar with Breton, Cot and Pineau d'Aunis? It's time to explore a wine culture as long as the river itself. There are dozens of AOCs that flank the banks of the Loire. Learn about the undiscovered treasures of this region and explore its diversity of grape varieties and wine styles. This class covers an in-depth history, geography, climate and the wines of the Loire, also known as le Jardin de la France.

This workshop is part of the French Wine Scholar program. As part of this workshop, you'll taste 6-8 wines related to the curriculum.
