Visit the medieval town of Chinon, known as 'The Garden of France'.
This town is not only a world heritage site in its own right, it is also one of the world's foremost purveyors of Cabernet Franc.
You will be amazed at just what can be achieved in half a day!
It might not seem like long, but spanning over four hours, your attentive expert guide will be on hand to ensure that all your needs are met, and all your expectations exceeded..
Contrary to popular belief; Chinon also produces some incredible white wine from the Chenin Blanc grape, and some extremely fruity rosé from Cabernet Franc.
In comparison with the famed Chinon Rouge; these styles are made in far smaller proportions.
Our advice is that when you find what appeals to you, be sure to buy; because the quality, particularly of the Chinon Blanc, is every bit as good as the red Chinon with which the region is famed for.
Regardless of what style of wine you prefer, it can be made accessible to you on a half day tour.
