Sancerre Welcomes Winemakers

The town of Sancerre (18 Cher, Centre-Val de Loire) welcomes winemakers from across France for their annual Sancerre Wine Fair (Foire aux Vins de France) for the weekend of 24 – 25 August 2019

Sancerre WIne Fair poster 2019This has been a tradition stretching back over 40 years and this year over 60 winemakers from other parts of France will be there. I suspect there is a bit of a competitive element here, as Sancerre winemakers, as elsewhere think that their wines are the best.

But for a tasting glass at €5.00 you can get to meet some winemakers and try a wide variety of wines in the attractive setting of the town overlooking the Loire river on one side and a stunning panorama of vines on the other.

Sancerre is typically a highly-rated dry white wine from the Sauvignon Blanc grape, thought to go particularly well with food (especially fish) –  although some red and rosé is made from Pinot Noir.

For more info on the Sancerre Wine Fair see www.ville-sancerre.com

Find the best rates for hotels in Sancerre including Hotel Le Panoramic, which has great views over the vines and the valley at the rear.

There is a good selection of Sancerre Wines in the UK at Majestic Wine (local warehouses and online)
