A delightful wine tour in the Vouvray vineyard
This travel guide will help you plan your stay and organize a wine tasting in some of the best wineries nearby.
After a quick stop in the small village of Vouvray, nature lovers and hikers will head off to walk the vines. Vouvray offers plenty opportunities for that with its magnificently landscaped vineyards. The best places for walking the vines is heading north : from the Loire you will have to climb the hillside, because the vines in Vouvray are not located on the banks of the river, but on the slopes, a mile or so further up the road. En route you will find many winery cellars to welcome an impromptu Vouvray tasting at local wineries. Simply check out our Vouvray winery map below.
