Loire Valley Winery help!

Hello!

Me and my boyfriend are planning a trip to France and are spending a few days in Normandy. We wanted to go to a winery and perhaps stay in a vineyard or castle if thats possible in that area. Does anyone know of any good vineyards or hotels around Tours or Chambord? Would this be worth a visit or are there better things to do in the area?

Thanks in Advance!

Normandy and the Loire Valley are two distinctly different areas. There are very few to no wineries in Normandy and châteaux are scarce.

In the Loire Valley, there is a good deal of wine production with some well known varieties such as Vouvray and Sancerre among many others. The châteaux are numerous and many are very well known such as Chambord (which you mention) or Chenonceau.

As far as places to stay, I would look for chambres d´hôtes or gItes (depending upon how long you are staying) using sources such as:
