The Natural Wine of the Loire Valley
A route of organic wines amidst castles and beautiful landscapes
WHAT BRINGS US HERE
Against the background of the traditional wine industry and its millions of liters produced, natural wine offers us a new, joyful and transparent model. This exemplary, delicious and philosophical wine requires an even greater knowledge of the land, the climate and the grapes. The result in the mouth is something amazingly alive and complex that captivates a growing number of fans. Natural wine is now a worldwide trend.
The Loire Valley has established itself as the main region of natural wine production in France. It was a profound and silent revolution that in the last twenty years has led its producers to achieve surprising results.
This itinerary will take us to the center of this global wine phenomenon while visiting some of the most beautiful castles and villages in France.
