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 Touraine
Just down diver from the Centre-Loire lies the Touraine. This area contains some of the most diverse plantings and variety of wines, as well as the famous AOCs of Vouvray, Chinon & Bourgueil. Here we meet the noble grapes of the region Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, but we will also explore lesser known varietals. In this class we will learn about the incredible range of styles as we dive into the rich history and geology of the Touraine.
This is class 2 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:
Marc Bredif Vouvray Classic 2018
Domaine de la Roche Bleue La Guiguette Coteaux du Loir 2018
Domaine de la Chanteleuserie Bourgueil 2018
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.
