Riverboat Wine Voyages S3, France (Loire Valley)

Description

Taste over 50 wines over a series of 10 'voyages', as we explore the famous and the up-and-coming wine regions of the world! Now in its third season, the Riverboat's Wine Voyages gives you the opportunity to learn more about wine whilst enjoying it with friends in a fun and social atmosphere on board Singapore's very own floating F&B and lifestyle venue.

Begin with a welcome sparkling wine and tostada chips. Once everyone is settled in, listen to a short presentation on the day's featured country/region by our guest wine specialist Akimi Yeo, followed by a guided tasting sequence of 4-5 other wines. Feel free to share your thoughts along the way, and ask questions anytime along the journey.


THIS VOYAGE: FRANCE (LOIRE VALLEY)

Sail along the Loire in Northwestern France, and take in the awe-inspiring sights of medieval castles, fortresses, towers as well as villages and vineyards. Located in the crucial frontier demarcating Northern and Southern France, the Loire is the country’s longest river and the 17th longest in the world.

Riverboat Wine Voyages Loire

In addition to being a popular historical tourist destination, the Loire Valley is also an established and celebrated wine region – or rather, a collection of several wine regions situated along its banks. In this voyage, we will be getting to know the names of these regions, learn about their signature grape varietals and wine styles, and of course taste a range of wines that attempt to give you a broad understanding of the Loire.

De Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume 2010

Chateau de Montgueret Rose d’Anjou 2016

Couly-Dutheil Les Barriors Bourgueil 2013

As like most French wines, the labels only reflect the appellation of origin and not the grape varietal itself. Looks like we’re gonna have some fun matching the regions, appellations and varietals as we explore this intriguing river on this voyage!
