Loire Valley

Home to Sancerre and Muscadet, the Loire Valley isn’t just the Garden of France: they’re pumping out crisp, dry, mineral driven wines at famously approachable prices. Here’s another pro tip: the Cabernet Franc coming out the villages like Saumur and Chinon are tremendously food friendly, while Gamay and Pinot Noir from the river valley are some of the best values in France.
