      The Loire Valley is known as “the Garden of France” for its parks, gardens, fruit orchards and, of course, vineyards. Home to around wineries, it’s a region that produces a wine for everyone, from light crisp Muscadet of the Pays Nantais, to earthy, spicy reds from Chinon.   Muscadet (“muss-kuh-day”) is a bone-dry, light-bodied white wine from the Loire Valley of France that is made with Melon de Bourgogne grapes. Muscadet is loved as an excellent food pairing wine due to its minerally, citrus-like taste and high acidity.

      France's wine regions offer some of the most famous varietals in the world, from robust reds in Bordeaux to crisp whites in the Loire Valley. The Dordogne Valley is known for its sweet whites and the famous brandy produced in the Cognac region is a must try. They’re all spicy, great-value ($18 to $40), medium-bodied reds that are famously food friendly. Pays Nantais. Close to the Atlantic Ocean is the third wine district of the Loire Valley — Pays Nantais (pay-ee nahn-tay), named after the city of Nantes, right where the Loire River empties into the Atlantic Ocean.

      The Loire offers such a wide range of distinctive red and white wines that food and wine pairing options can sometimes seem endless. We give you an overview of the basics. Reds. Most red wines in the Loire appellations of Saumur-Champigny, Chinon, Bourgueil, Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil and Anjou are produced with Cabernet Franc. How to Use This Wine Guide This is a very different kind of wine guide. It leverages the strengths of the digital medium to make understanding the Loire Valley’s wines easier and more intuitive. What’s Inside • A framework. We emphasize the fundamental themes that are key to understanding the Loire Valley and its wines. • Everything in.
