Azay-le-rideau

One of the most remarkable Loire Valley castles, but also a charming medieval town and a ... wine appellation.

Azay-le-rideau : a castle, a town with history and ... interesting wines.

This travel guide will help you plan your stay and organize a wine tasting in some of the best wineries nearby.

A une encablure de Tours se dévoile Azay-le-rideau et son château enchanteur. L’AOC Touraine-Azay-le-Rideau est une appellation relativement récente (une quarantaine d’années) dont la production reste assez confidentielle : 60 hectares à peine! Le vignoble d’Azay-le-Rideau s’étend ainsi le long de la vallée de l’Indre, de Montbazon aux confluents de l’Indre et de la Loire, où la douceur du climat local est favorable à la production de vins rosés et de vins blancs secs ou demi-secs. Venant de Tours, en allant sur Azay, les amoureux de beaux jardins feront un crochet pour flâner dans les magnifiques jardins à la française de Villandry. En quittant Azay, les amoureux du cabernet franc fileront au sud pour rejoindre la ville de Chinon et son vignoble réputé.
