    The vast majority of the Bourgueil or Chinon wines produced are red, and only a couple percents of the grapes end up in rosé and white. The vines of this estate are ideally spread out over the entire "terroir" covered by the appellation, from the gravel shores along the Loire River to the clay, limestone and sandy soils of the hills overlooking the valley. The red and rosé wines produced in the domain are presented under the appellation "Bourgueil" AOC. They stem 100% from the " Cabernet Franc" grape introduced by the monks of the Abbey in the 11th century.

    Imposing medieval fortress of the 15th century which boasts towers, ramparts, rampart walk and a drawbridge, the Château de Langeais also possesses a beautiful Renaissance facade on the garden side. Remarkable, the inside of the Château de Langeais is richly and splendidly decorated. This is where King Charles VIII and Queen Anne of Brittany’s sumptuous wedding took place in December 1491. This marriage marked the beginning of the incorporation of the duchy of Brittany into the French kingdom.

    The Langeais gardens are also not to be missed.

    Guided tour of one of the most spectacular gardens of Touraine: Villandry

    The landmark there is a small country castle built during the Renaissance times and modified during the 18th century.

    The landmark there is a small country castle built during the Renaissance times and modified during the 18th century. However, the most interesting thing in Villandry is certainly the castle’s huge gardens. In the early 20th century, the new owner of the castle, Joachim Carvallo, decided to recreate the Renaissance garden to give the Villandry its grandeur back. If you are lucky enough to have a sunny day on your visit, you will love strolling along the flowerbeds and around the lake.

    By its diversity and originality (Love Garden, Kitchen Garden, Aromatic and Medicine Plant Garden, Water Garden and the brand new Sun Garden) and by its sheer size (15 acres, 1150 linden trees), Villandry is the Loire Valley garden not to be missed.
