Maybe you suppose that the ultimate sweet wines come from the Sauternes Region... However some jewels of the best sweet wines are to be found in the Loire Valley.

Domaine des Barres does not export, what a pity! These Chaume and Layon are just incredible. Come to Chateau de la Barre to taste them with our neighbour's homemade "foie gras".wine-tasting.jpg

Wines of the Rhone Valley are considered by the connoisseurs as the best wines in the world. More rare and exclusive than the famous Bordeaux or Burgundies, they are difficult to find but possible to discover in the cellar of Chateau de la Barre. Tonight some of our guests, ordered this selection of the most famous Crus and winemakers: Cote-Rotie by Guigal, Chateauneuf du Pape by Domaine de Beaurenard and Hermitage by Chapoutier. A rare experience!

Beth Arnold wrote a detailed report of her stay in Chateau de la Barre in her famous blog and in the Huffingtonpost. We could not find better words to describe a sojourn in our Chateau. Thanks to Beth and "the Wolf" for this review.

Maybe you already know Chambord, Chenonceau, Cheverny, Amboise and other royal palaces of the Loire Valley. We can provide you information for visiting them but also special addresses of wineries, restaurants... We are very close to the Loir Valley, an undiscovered region of great charm with beautiful villages, gardens, monuments, churches with frescoes, wineries... and far from the maddening crowds.
