The Loire Valley is referred to as the Cradle of the French and the Garden of France, due to the numerous vineyards, cherry orchards and asparagus fields which line the banks of the river…
Wine from the Loire Valley is fresh, fruity and crisp with refreshing acidity and moderate alcohol making it the perfect food pairing region. Whilst the refreshing minerality works perfectly with spring flavours, the wines also pair particularly well with cheese.
There are 48 cheeses in France that have the protected AOC status, and six of them are in the Loire Valley. Cheese from the Loire Valley is part of the region’s gastronomic identity, not to mention a very large pull for tourists to the region.
