Take online wine classes with Vinolust! Learn all about wine from the comfort of home.

The Loire River is the longest in France. Its valley is known as the Garden of France, home to world-class wines and the castles of kings and queens.  Come on a virtual tour with us as we taste our way down the river and learn about this extraordinary wine region.

This class: The Centre-Loire

The Centre-Loire is near the heart of the country and includes the famous appellations of Sancerre & Pouilly-Fumé.  Its best known for its Sauvignon Blancs and local goat cheese, but did you know that Pinot Noir and Gamay are also grown here?  And that the soils are part of what make the wines so special?  In this class we’ll cover the most famous appellations, as well as the lesser known areas and grapes of the region.

Series Discount

This is class 1 in a four-part series. You can take this class on its own, or take the FULL TOUR of four classes for just $50!


Purchase price does not include wine, but we encourage you to open some wine during class so that we can taste together!  Selecting the same wines as me will give you a more tailored tasting experience, but in a pinch any wine will do.  This class I will be opening the following three wines:

Lucien Crochet Sancerre 2018
Domaine de Reuilly Pinot Gris Rosé 2018
La Raimbauderie Sancerre Rosé 2019

For this class I am partnering with Hi-Time in Costa Mesa.  You can buy these wines directly from Hi-Time before class to get the full tasting experience.  They also ship throughout the country!  If you are joining the full 4 class tour, plan ahead and get the Vinolust Tour of Loire Valley 12-pack. This case contains the 3 wines being opened each class at 10% off the total price.  And of course you are always welcome to source wine for class on your own, or take the class with no wine at all.
