Chateau de Cheverny, still the Loire

Here is another memorable visit and taken from my initial blog vault of 2011. Chateau de Cheverny is known for its hunting history and the kennel dogs still there.

The tourist office has info in English too: http://www.amboise-valdeloire.co.uk/discover/the-castles-of-the-loire/chateau-of-cheverny

A bit more info below

It is in dept 41 or Loir-et-Cher in the region of Centre Val de Loire and only 14kms from Blois it’s nearest major town. In town or nearby you find the Château de Cheverny, Château de Troussay, and the Château du Breuil (now a Hôtel-Restaurant).

It has an AOC wine of Cheverny denomination or appellation using the grapes gamay, pinot noir, cabernet franc, côt, pineau d’Aunis, sauvignon, chardonnay ,and chenin blanc. Doing red, white and rosé wines of good quality/price ratio. The official AOC site is here in English or French:http://www.maisondesvinsdecheverny.fr/en/

Some I have taste and purchase before such as Domaine Philippe Tessier ,Domaine de la Désoucherie, and Domaine Chesneau et Fils. Go on the site above to the Wine Shop and see their prices to know what I mean.

One of the biggest event here is the Jazzin Festival, already gone in 2017 look for it in 2018 here in French http://www.jazzin-cheverny.com/

The city page of Cheverny in English, has lots of info on tourism activities in the area including the castle of course. webpage here: http://www.mairie-cheverny.com/english/

  1. Like I said before, the Châteaux du Loire are all magnificent and all have something different to offer.
    My favourite summer wines as Rosé du Loire, Anjou du Loire and Rosé d’Anjou as they are very light and refreshing and perfect for lunch! Cheers!
