Playground (and battleground!) of French royalty for centuries, this river valley south of Paris is more than just Disney-esque castles (and these ones are not built from plastic)!!! The wine voyage of the Loire region includes a vast array of white wines (ranging from super-dry to decadently lush), fascinating light-bodied reds and perky, fun rosés. Especially captivating in the Spring and Summer, this picturesque region is rightfully called “The Garden of France”. The wines are just as pretty as the region, and they only await your voyage of discovery!
