Impressive Loire wines are made in Chinon. A proud medieval city, Chinon is rich in vineyards and is a beautiful village. From above the Royal Castle, the view of the city, the Vienne and the green vines is breathtaking. Chinon’s ruby wine is made on the slopes of the Loire and Vienne. The town, with its cobbled streets, typical half-timbered houses and imposing mansions, invites you to enjoy a glass of Chinon on a terrace, in a tavern or in a wine cellar where you can also buy local wine.
