Sancerre, one of the wine villages on our Three Classics wine tour

Sancerre is perhaps most famous for two things: Fist of all its delicious, refreshing, elegant yet structured white wines made from sauvignon blanc. Secondly it is the goat cheeses, not least the Crottin de Chavignol, the small, round cheese, also with quite a high acidity. Together they make a perfect combination towards the end of a meal: a glass of sancerre and a bite of goat cheese.

Here are some pictures and videos from a wine tour to Sancerre in the upper Loire Valley.

Sancerre is one of the destinations we sometimes include in the wine and food tour that we call The Three Classics: Sancerre in the Loire Valley, Chablis in northern Burgundy, and Champagne. A perfect trio of elegant wines that will also make for perfect travel destinations for a wine and food tour to three of the exciting wine regions in northern France.

Take a look in our wine tour schedule, Our Tours > Scheduled Wine Tours, to see if we currently have one of the schedule. We can also plan a custom made wine tour to Sancerre, the Loire Valley, or other wine regions in France for you.
