Loire Valley Tasting DTLA

Loire Valley Wine Tasting, DTLA

This was a really fun event in Downtown Los Angeles. Loire Valley Wines provided a great setup and the wines were showing well. The Loire Valley produces more white and Rosé than red wine. This makes Loire Valley wine perfect for the warm weather in Southern California.

So, let’s get in to the Loire Valley…

First, a map of the region:

Here is a closer look at the labels. Notice the nautilus on the middle bottle. This is because of the fossils found in the soil of this region.  The Loire Valley produces red wine also, and it is delicious! Most of the reds are based on the Cabernet Franc grape, though there is small planting of other varieties.
