Tours : what are the appellations (AOC/AOP)?

Which Loire wines to taste at vineyards in Tours? Some wine makers offer wines from different appellations, depending on the geographical location of their vineyards. A wine tasting at the winery will allow you to explore the wide range of Loire Valley wines. Follow the guide.

Many wineries own vineyards across multiple appellations (also known as PDO or Protected Designation of Origin), which always leaves a wide range of possibilities. In France, appellations are usually referred to as AOC (Controlled Designation of Origin) or AOP (Appellation of Protected Origin). The difference? None really, it lies in the fact that AOP is a newer and broader European appellation, which includes French AOCs as well as other European appellations.
