Oenology: Cheverny wines
Cheverny and Touraine: two essential steps for budding oenologists

In addition to its proximity to the various castles of Chambord, Blois and Cheverny, the hotel is the ideal place for wine tourism, thanks to its proximity to the vineyards of Touraine and Cheverny. The Hotel, modern and renovated, is intended to be warm and has 36 rooms (family, Deluxe, standard, classic) well equipped. A restaurant offers you a local and varied cuisine 7 days a week. The hotel is accessible in less than 2 hours from Paris by car, and in 1 hour from Orléans.

The ideal hotel for wine tourism
The wine road between Nantes and Blois is 300 km long. Touraine wines and Cheverny wines represent two stages of this process that are highly appreciated by oenologists. With nearly 110 tourist cellars in Touraine, you can discover many red wines, made from pinot noir but also from cabernet sauvignon or pinot gris, among others. Touraine's white wines are renowned for being dry and lively. Cheverny red wines are mainly obtained from a gamay type grape variety, coupled with a pinot noir type grape variety. In white wines, we will very often find Sauvignon-type grape varieties.
The wines of Cheverny, like the wines of Touraine, have the appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC). This label guarantees, first of all, the production of wine in a defined geographical area. Then, it makes it possible to be sure that the wine is obtained according to a recognized know-how. It is therefore the assurance of a high-quality product. Visits to vineyards, wine tastings in troglodytic cellars and theme walks are on the programme for your future stay in Cheverny and Touraine. Hôtel Relais des Trois Châteaux welcomes you all year round to discover the rich local wine culture.
