Every year when Spring rolls around, we are reminded of one of our favorite places in the world: The Loire Valley in France. Starting at Sancerre in the East and following the Loire River through dozens of beautiful villages and ending at the Atlantic in Muscadet, you would pass through picturesque vineyards, mushroom caves, goat ranches and chateaus. It truly is a magical place, with some of the best French food and wine you could hope for. We're putting a dinner together to celebrate all that we love about this place. We hope you'll join us.
