Enjoy a taste of France’s famous Loire vineyards right here in London!
This July, there’s a colourful wine truck touring around London offering free tastings of delicious Loire Valley Wines and honestly, it’s the best news we’ve heard all year! But guess what? The incredible wine truck is just one part of the amazing Loire Bucket List that is back for the third year in a row this summer.
The Loire Bucket List is an invitation from Loire Valley Wines to discover the French region’s finest wines alongside the best of our fair city. Londoners can look forward to bespoke wine tasting menus, offers and giveaways from over 30 London bars and restaurants, and visits to the Loire Bucket List’s Little Wine Truck, of course!
Yes, our usual travel bucket lists might still be on hold, but there’s no need to panic when there are so many places in London to explore and enjoy – and Loire Valley Wines is here to help! They’ve created four bespoke discovery routes, designed to help you capture a few moments of conviviality as you experience London like never before.
The self-guided itineraries will take you to gorgeous gardens, art galleries, flower markets and palaces. All before inviting you to sit back, relax and taste some exquisite Loire Valley Wines at one of the specially recommended wine bars and restaurants –think Clarette, Vagabond Wines, Sager + Wilde and more!
On the weekends, the Loire Bucket List’s Little Wine Truck will pull up on the Southbank and in the Taste France area at Regent’s Park ready to quench the thirst of curious Londoners. And we highly recommend a visit because, as Loire Valley Wines says, “life’s too short to drink bad wine”.
And, if that wasn’t exciting enough, the wine truck will also delight a lucky few with a home visit! That’s right, the wine truck could park up outside your home and bring the wine tasting directly to you. Enter the ballot to book a wine truck home visit here.
At the wine truck you’ll find an expert sommelier on hand to take you through a free, walk-in tasting showcasing the diverse range of wines that the Loire region of France has to offer. From whites to rosés, you’ll take a sensory journey from Muscadet to Touraine and Saumur! You’ll enjoy the vibrancy of the Crémant de Loire sparkling wines and the fruitiness of Rosé d’Anjou. One sip of the Loire Valley Wines will transport you straight to the grand Chateaux and the stunning cliffs of the Atlantic coast… What are you waiting for? Go find the Loire Bucket List’s Little Wine Truck now!
Meanwhile, our friends further afield will be pleased to hear that in September, the Loire Bucket List will continue its journey across the UK. So you can sip the last of that summer wine in Bristol, Manchester and Liverpool too!
