The Loire Valley is a key wine region in western France. It follows the course of the Loire river on its long journey through the heart of France, from the inland hills of Auvergne to the plains on the French Atlantic coast near Nantes (Muscadet country).

Important in terms of both quantity and quality, the region generates vast quantities of wine annually (around four million hl / 106 million gallons) including some of France's finest.

Diversity is another of the region's key strengths. The wine styles made here range from the light, tart Muscadet and sweet, honeyed Bonnezeaux to the sparkling whites of Vouvray and juicy, tannic reds of Chinon and Saumur. It is quite telling that this brief sketch of the region's wines does not even make reference to the two most famous Loire Valley wines of all – Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume.

Our instructor, Thierry Givone, will take you on a tasting tour with a selection of wines and grapes from this unique region

About the instructor:  Thierry Givone was born and raised in Burgundy, with two uncles working for a prestigious winemaker in Beaune. After graduating from the Wine and Spirit Education and the Wine University of Bordeaux, he created Wine Tasting in Paris to share his passion for wine. He is a jury member for wine competitions and provides tastings for visitors from all over the world. We are fortunate that he is opening his private tasting room especially for WICE members.
