France » Loire
The French do rivers really, really well and here at SG we reckon the Loire is the first among equals. The Loire valley provides a home to many a beloved appellation - Muscadet, Sancerre, Vouvray, Touraine, Pouilly Fumé for starters - along and about this wonderful stretch of river. Perhaps only California can rival the Loire in terms of sheer diversity of grape, wine style and terroir and the youthful energy of its vignerons. Constant experimentation and innovation make it one of the world's most thrilling wine regions!
