Vouvray




Everyone is not going to have an interest in wines, however, since posting several articles about the Loire region, I am delighted to introduce an old wine in a new facility.

Located along the northern bank of the river, you will find this artistically decorated and bright new showroom with an exceptional staff . While you are visiting the property, be sure to take a tour of the caves.

Vouvray has produced some remarkabe and notable wines, one being their Chenin Blanc. Vouvray also produces a sparkling wine, one to pop into your picnic basket as you enjoy a picnic lunch along the many beautiful spots of the nearby river.

I love Vouvray, we've stayed there and had great wine and rillettes from a well-known boucherie there.

My cousin has a wine tasting game called "Hooray for Vouvray"...I'm not a big wine guy but I do dig tasting the different brands of similar wines to compare/contrast :)

Jann said...

wheresmymind-I think you cousin and I would enjoy a tasting together! Hooray for Vouvray-that is so funny! Cheers!

Meredith-rillettes-oh, wow-how wonderful. Maybe we were at the same boucherie-Cheers to you!

I love Vouvray and only regret that the three years I lived in the Loire Valley were spent diapering rather than drinking!
