Loire Valley

Sancerre, France

Circuitous medieval streets, half-timbered houses, quaint storefronts, butterscotch-hued buildings, and turreted rooftops that gleam like copper pennies constitute the French wine-making village of Sancerre, set in the eastern edge of the Loire Valley. Best known for its crisp, floral-tinged Sauvignon Blanc wine, Sancerre occupies a hilltop, which overlooks more than 400 vineyards. Just 2 hours from Paris, the region is also touted for its crottin de chavignol, a creamy goat cheese.
