The Loire Valley, often referred to as the ‘Garden of France’, is an important wine producing regionlocated between Sully-sur-Loire and Chalonnes-sur-Loire. One of the main regions here is the Anjou.
The region produces a variety of wines, but perhaps the most popular (certainly here in the Netherlands, especially since the 70s!) is the Rosé d’Anjou.
To the wine connoisseur, the region of Burgundy is synonymus with the Côte-d’Or. Often referred to as the ‘golden slope’, the east-facing escarpment produces some of the world’s most prestigious wines. Think of big names such as Gevrey-Chambertin and Puligny-Montrachet. These are the giants that have made the region famous. Unfortunately, a bottle bearing such a name on its label, is not within everyone’s budget. But those who continue further down south will find the Côte Chalonnaise – a district which is similar to the Côte-d’Or yet produces wines that are significantly more affordable and certainly worth discovering.
