Visiting Montlouis-sur-Loire wine region

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

Ten miles from Tours and not far from Amboise, the Montlouis-sur-Loire wine region charms with its picturesque vineyards. Vines deployed in serene undulations, worth a stroll. But also and above all Montlouis-sur-Loire produces superb dry and sweet white wines, made from 100% chenin blanc. Montlouis-sur-Loire (or Montlouis for short) is a sublime Loire Valley wine appellation. Less recognized that its more famous  neighbor, Vouvray (located on the opposite bank of the Loire). Quite unfairly, so be said. If you want to straighten this out, go visit (and taste) Montlouis wines. Between Amboise and Tours, our online guide will help you select the perfect Montlouis wineries for your wine tasting tour. Cheers.
