Angers Val de Loire

Angers, in the Loire Valley: vineyards, villages and castles

To guarantee a successful holiday surrounded by vineyards, refer to the Vignobles & Découvertes ("Vineyards & Discoveries") list of estates and properties, which provides a selection of cellars open to visitors and offering tastings, discovery activities, accommodation, fine food and wine restaurants, visits to cultural sites and events connected with the local wine and heritage.

In the Loire Valley there are 8 tourist and wine destinations which offer these quality services and visits. Come and enjoy an unforgettable journey that is people-centred, cultural and historical, with renowned wines such as Muscadet, Layon, Chinon or Touraine.

The temperate climate of the Angers Val de Loire destination, listed by Vignobles & Découvertes, makes for exceptional red and white wines. Come and discover these enchanting landscapes with vineyards set on the slopes of hills, small typical Loire Valley villages, and castles, and enjoy tasting the three AOC wines of the region: Savennières, Coteaux de l'Aubance and Anjou Villages Brissac.
Near Angers itself, discover the AOC Savennières, Coteaux de l'Aubance and Anjou Villages Brissac which are among the most prestigious wines of the Loire vineyards.

This is a holiday destination with no shortage of natural, cultural and gastronomic attractions! Come and explore the charming villages of Savennières, Béhuard and Blaison-Gohier neslting in the midst of the vineyards.
In the middle of the Aubance wine-growing district stands the majestic Château of Brissac, which is the taller than any of the royal châteaux. With its 7 floors and 204 rooms, it definitely suits its nickname as the "Giant of the Loire Valley". Don't miss the wine tasting at the end of the visit!


Enjoy the three AOC wines of Angers Val de Loire

There is an abundant choice of prestigious wines to try. Made using Chenin grapes, the whites include dry (Savennières) and sweet (Coteaux de l'Aubance) wines. Anjou Villages Brissac is red and comes from two grape varieties: Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
You can enjoy these wines directly in the cellar, in the company of a passionate winemaker, at the table of one of the 18 certified restaurants or in one of the 30 local Vignobles & Découvertes accommodation choices.

Another idea is to take one of the itineraries running through the wine-growing district. Succomb to the charm of the paths winding through the vineyards and enjoy walking and understanding what you see thanks to the fun and explanatory information panels: "Wine-growing and Geology" at Saint-Melaine-sur-Aubance, "The vine over time "in Saint-Jean-des-Mauvrets, "Vineyards and Heritage" in Blaison-Gohier and "On the slopes of Savennières" at Savennières.

Alternatively, why not pedal along the La Loire à Vélo cycle route which crosses the region?
