The fabulous Richard Kelley, Master of Wine (of whom there are less than 400 in the world!) come and talk with us about why the Loire Valley is his region of choice in France.
The Loire is France’s most famous river and one of its most varied wine regions which produces France’s third biggest volume of wine after Bordeaux and the Rhône. Over 4000 wineries produce a dizzying array of elegant, quality wines here. Racy whites, refreshing rosés, reds that favour fruit over force, and top notch sumptuous sweet and sparkling wines can all be found in the Loire.
Interestingly, Loire wines are greatly appreciated locally and in Paris, but – with the famous exceptions of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé – are still widely underrated outside France. Come along to what is sure to be a very enjoyable evening and see why the French would like to keep these wines to themselves!
