There are five micro-region Guides for you to peruse, running most of the length of the Loire from Nantes, through the heart of the region around Angers and Tours, and continuing upriver to Sancerre in the Central Vineyards. The contributor for these guides, Jim Budd, has been a specialist in Loire wines for over 20 years and has a base near Tours.
