The ideal hotel for wine tourism

The wine route between Nantes and Blois is 300 kilometers long. The wines of Touraine and Cheverny are two of the most popular stops on this route. With almost 110 tourist wineries in Touraine, you can discover a wide range of red wines, from Pinot Noir to Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Gris. Touraine white wines are renowned for being dry and lively. Cheverny red wines are mostly made from a Gamay grape, coupled with a Pinot Noir. White wines are very often made from Sauvignon-type grapes.

Cheverny wines, like Touraine wines, have the appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC). This label guarantees, firstly, that the wine is produced in a defined geographical area. Secondly, it guarantees that the wine has been produced according to recognized know-how. It's the guarantee of a high-quality product. Visits to vineyards, wine tastings in troglodytic cellars and themed walks are all on the agenda for your future stay in Cheverny and Touraine. The Hôtel Relais des Trois Châteaux welcomes you all year round to discover the rich local wine culture.
