There is no other wine region with so many good quality wines as the Loire. A few examples are Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Muscadet. Visit the wine museum (Musée des Vins de Touraine) where you can learn everything about the wines or make your trip in June, when the Vitiloire festival takes place each year.
There are several walking trails near the vineyards, but you can also explore this region by bike.
