Tasting wines from different regions of France is like a voyage of discovery. Find out why a wine tour around Chateaumeillant, one of France’s smallest AOCs, is a must for anyone visiting France’s famous Loire Valley…
1. Loire Valley wine tours: Chateaumeillant is France’s most central vineyard
Straddling the Indre and Cher departments, Chateaumeillant is slap bang in the centre of France.
Its position at the foothills of the Massif Central and the volcanic soil of the terroir, mean that the area produces delicious reds and rosés, which we think are some of the best in the Loire Valley.
2. Discover wonderful wines tours off the beaten track
Visitors to the Loire Valley tend to stick to larger, more well-known areas further to the north of the Loire Valley. Chateaumeillant provides visitors with the opportunity to leave the beaten track…and be rewarded for it!
3) The best things really do come in small packages
Chateaumeillant wine is all about quality over quantity. With around 90 hectares of vines, the area doesn’t produce anywhere near as much wine as some of its bigger cousins.
But what is produced is really, really special.
4) Taste the area’s famous rosé gris
We may be biased, but we think Chateaumeillant produces some of the best rosé in the whole of France. The area’s rosé gris should not be missed.
