From West to East, the Loire River Valley is an embarrassment of riches.  On the far west, it starts with the amazing wines of Muscadet – incredibly refreshing and shockingly long-lived (and crazy cheap for the quality of wines).  On the far east end, it finishes with the incredibly powerful Sauvignon Blancs of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume.  But that is to say nothing of hundreds of great wines in between – including some utterly refreshing red wines made from Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot d’Anuis.

But the Loire gets even better – almost all of its wines remain relatively unknown.  For those of us game for a little exploratory drinking, top wines can be had on the cheap!  Come join us at this tasting to explore the wonderful wine world of the Loire Valley.
