I know what you’re saying out there: “White wine in the cold Midwestern February?” I get it. Yet, if you’ve visited the famed Loire Valley and seen the majestic Chateau de Chambord, you’ll know how romantic white wine can be! We’ve assembled a smattering of great wines to help you create seductive, romantic meals and evenings for your dining and dancing pleasures.



Pascal Jolivet

2016 Pouilly-Fumé

Loire Valley, France

Retail: $28.99

Gorgeous Sauvignon Blanc, akin to Sancerre, showing bracing acidity, pronounced minerality and hints of chalk and lime.

Laurent Kraft

2015 Vouvray

Loire Valley, France

Retail: $19.99

This is a pretty easygoing Chenin Blanc with hints of fresh honeydew, lanolin, and cream. Off-dry. A great introduction to Vouvray.

Pascal Jolivet

2017 Sancerre

Loire Valley, France

Retail $25.99

Clean and zippy! Slight notes of grapefruit and wheatgrass. Classic Sancerre at an approachable price!

Domaine des Baumard

2016 Savennieres

Loire Valley, France

Retail: $29.99

Bone dry example of Chenin Blanc. A great alternative to White Burgundy. Almond and peach are these wines’ calling cards. Acidity and minerality allow this gem to age or you can drink it right now!
