A private sancerre wine tour with an expert driver-guide
Discover one of the Loire Valley’s most renowned wine-growing regions, world-renowned for the excellence and finesse of its white and red wines made from Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes: Sancerre.
Leaving Touraine, you’ll cross the superb Sologne forest to reach the harmonious hills of Sancerre.
Still bordered by the Loire, but on the border with Burgundy, the Sancerre region boasts a unique terroir.
The setting is one of the most photogenic in the region, with a village classified as one of the most beautiful in France, a series of hills covered in vines and forests, and the wild Loire separating the vineyards of Sancerre from those of Pouilly-sur-Loire (Pouilly-Fumé).
From Touraine, it takes around 2h15-30min to drive to this isolated vineyard for Sancerre wine tour. Depending on timing requirements, it is possible to discover either 2 estates (including a picnic) or 3 estates (including a picnic). The selected estates are authentic family-run estates, mostly working organically or with sustainable viticulture convictions, with great histories and high-quality wines.
You’ll spend the day discovering the different terroirs and understanding their impact on vine cultivation and wine taste. You’ll meet producers offering wines with different styles to get as complete an understanding of the region as possible.
By mid-afternoon, you’ll be heading back to Touraine, which should leave you plenty of time for a nap or a chat with your driver-guide. Arrival is scheduled for around 6 – 6.30pm.
2 possible options: 2 estates (9-hour day) or 3 estates (10-10:30 a.m. day)
