If you’re looking for white wine alternatives to Chardonnay, discover the Loire Valley wine region.

The Upper Loire

The two principal wines in this area are Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé.

  • Sancerre is the lighter and more vibrant of the two.
  • Pouilly-Fumé is slightly fuller than Sancerre and can have attractive flinty, mineral flavors. Pouilly-Fumé can be quite a fine wine when made by a good producer, such as Didier Dagueneau

The central Loire Valley

The central Loire Valley is known for both its white and red wines. The white Chenin Blanc grape makes better wine here than it does anywhere else in the world.

  • Coulée de Serrant is a great dessert white wine made from Chenin Blanc
  • Vouvray wines come in three styles: dry (sec), medium-dry (demi-sec), or sweet. The best wines of Vouvray, the sweet (moelleux), can be made only in vintages of unusual ripeness, which occur infrequently. 

Pays Nantais

Close to the Atlantic Ocean is the third wine district of the Loire Valley — Pays Nantais named after the city of Nantes, right where the Loire River empties into the Atlantic Ocean.

This area is the home of the Muscadet grape.

  • Vouvray

    Vouvray is the most famous and most respected appellation of the Loire Valley's Touraine district.

    Vouvray is the flagship wine of the Chenin Blanc grape.

  • Savennières

    Savennieres is a highly respected white wine appellation of the Loire valley wine region of France.

    There are two crus (named vineyard areas) in the Savennieres appellation, namely Coulee de Serrant and La Roche aux Moines. Although the appellation as a whole covers only 370 acres (150ha), these two lieux-dits have been identified as capable of producing exceptional Savennieres wines.

  • AOC Pouilly-fumé

    Pouilly-Fume – a dry white wine made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes – is one of the Loire Valley's most revered wines. It is rivaled in this regard only by Sancerre, just the other side of the Loire River, and perhaps Vouvray.

    The Pouilly-Fumé appellation title was created in 1937.
