By nature and nurture the Loire Valley is an aristocratic place. Even the wines manifest this inherent balance of structure and precision and grace. With more than 300 castles and/or châteaux, plus gardens, vineyards and broad expanses of cropland, flank the Loire River. It is because of this exquisitely pastoral yet cultured landscape that the region is known as “Le Jardin de la France”, France’s Garden. Not only a perfect destination for soft adventure, it is also the home of some of the most enjoyable wines.
