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.

  

WHAT WILL HAPPEN
As with traditional wine routes, we will tour the Loire Valley with selected stops at some of the properties that produce the best natural wines of the region. We may also include a castle to our itinerary as in the Loire Valley we find some of the most beautiful castles in France, incredible places with characters and historical facts that seem to have come out of fantastic tales. We will have time to visit medieval cities that are part of the history of France. Throughout the trip, we will taste the regional cuisine dishes in restaurants carefully chosen for a complete gastronomic experience.

did you know ?
Natural wine is a wine produced from organically grown or biodynamic grapes, harvested by hand and made using artisanal techniques (for example, horses to treat the soil instead of tractors) and especially low or non-existent doses of sulfite (dioxide of sulfur, which upon contact with alkaline solutions of wine, forms sulfites). The origin of natural wine dates back to the early 20th century when a revolt of winemakers in southern France already demanded a "natural wine" produced exclusively from grape juice and without "artificial manufacturing." This old claim of the world of wine joined, from the 80's, on the consumer's demand for a healthy diet and the societal movement back to nature, which gave rise to the current concept of "natural wine."
