Touraine wines

From Cheverny to Bourgueil, Chinon to Vendôme, Touraine has been a wine-growing region since the Romanization of the Gallic countryside. Wines are made from a variety of grape varieties, including Sauvignon and Chardonnay for whites, and Cabernet and Pinot Noir for reds and rosés. These grape varieties enable the Touraine AOC to offer a wide variety of aromas, with characters that change according to vintage and terroir. The vineyards of the Loire Valley are a Unesco World Heritage Site.
