Grand chateaux and glorious vineyards make the Loire Valley ripe for discovery. Famous vintages such as Muscadet, Chinon and Vouvray age in ancient cellars. Follow the chateau trail to Chenonceaux or Azay-le-Rideau with their fair tale turrets over-looking the undulating river and verdant country. Scenic hills and dales give way to magnificent food and wine. It all adds up to a bourgeois paradise.
