Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region Loire: Loire Valley has it all. Whether you prefer some of the most famous grape varieties worldwide, or you like to be surprised with secretly brilliant wines, Loire Valley will make you return any time you have a chance. It's unquestionably one of the most diverse, and sometimes unjustly neglected, wine regions in France. Located on the banks of the Loire river, these vineyards are home to some of the most exquisite French wines. And not only does Loire Valley provide us with top-rated wines each year, but it also deserves applause for the number of bottles it produces. The most prominent grape varieties of Loire are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Melon de Bourgogne. They are undoubtedly the crown jewels of this region, although reds, such as Cabernet Franc, Bourgueil, or Pinot Noir don't fall much behind. With such exceptional grape varieties, it's impossible to think the Loire wouldn't treat us all with absolutely magnificent wines. It offers a wide palette of crisp and refreshing whites, as well as dry, elegant reds. To feel the magic and the impeccable quality of Loire wines, we recommend Domaine Didier Dagueneau, Foreau Domaine du Clos Naudin, or Domaine Huet of Le Haut Lieu.
Type of Wine France (Other): No words exist that could accurately portray France's influence on the world of wine. This isn't a problem for us mortals, as a single sip of an elegant, classic French wine speaks directly to one's soul in a hitherto unfamiliar language. Whether you're enjoying a classy Cabernet Sauvignon or a charming Chardonnay, your mind drifts just a bit closer to heaven.

Varietal Malbec: Malbec is something of an oddity among red wine grape varietals. It has traditionally been considered difficult to grow and implement in France, a challenging choice that often doesn't pay off. However, once it was brought over to Argentina, the world began to realize how mind-shatteringly appealing it can be. Nowadays, Malbec wines stand toe to toe with the greatest wines of the planet as Argentina's most accomplished red wine varietal.
