Anjou and Saumur white wines, or Chenin in all its glory
At the crossroads between Brittany and France’s more continental regions, Anjou certainly did not draw the short straw. Its vineyards, divided between what is commonly referred to as black schist-clad Anjou and its white limestone alter ego, thrive along and around the banks of the Loire and its tributaries the Thouet, Layon and Aubance. Over 2,000 winegrowers call the area home, and have often done so for generations, producing every style of wine, both still and sparkling.

Michael Douglas: “I discovered and learned to enjoy wine in France”
There’s no denying that at 79, Michael Douglas could be enjoying a well-deserved retirement, relaxing on the white sand beaches beneath the coconut trees or sipping rosé after a game of golf in the Bahamas. Given his successful career and countless box office hits, nobody would have held it against him. But that’s not who the prolific and tireless offspring of Kirk – aka Spartacus – is. More active than ever, he should soon feature in a biopic on Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States of America. In the meantime, let’s raise a toast to this lover of fine fare and most Francophile of stars!

Alsace: A mosaic of vineyard sites enhancing varietal expression
