What you'll do

Unless other arrangements have been made, you will be met in Sancerre where you will enjoy your first visit to a local wine-maker and learn about the history of wine-making in the region and the art of making world class Sauvignon blanc wines. You will also take a historical walking tour of this former Huguenot bastion which also boasts great views over the famous Loire river. From Sancerre you will be taken to visit the colourful street market in nearby Cosne-sur-Loire (Wed & Sun only) as well as a nearby goat farm to sample the excellent crottin de Chavignol. Lunch is in a typical local bistro where you can enjoy a selection of the local specialities such as warm goats' cheese served on toasts with a bed of fresh lettuce and diced bacon. We will also make a stop to admire the 12C Church and beautiful riverside town of la Charite-sur-Loire. This afternoon you will be taken to another mecca for all wine-lovers, Pouilly-sur-Loire, where a visit to a local winery will introduce you to an increasingly rare wine made from the Chasselas varietal. You will also enjoy a visit to a producer of an little-known appellation, Coteaux du Giennois, which produces super wines at fantastic prices!
