Remarkable !

Last weekend, on our travels with visiting friends, we found the Château de Valmer. This wine producing château is just outside of Vouvray and produces the full range of chenin blancs that are common in that A.O.C. - sparkling, dry, and sweet.

The entrance to the Château de Valmer.
The brochure says that Valmer is renowned for its terraced gardens, including a kitchen garden that strives to conserve rare vegetable varieties. They were closed until April 1, and we'll wait until closer to summer to go back and explore them - not to mention to taste the wine!

This small sign near the entrance marks Valmer as the site of a "remarkable," or noteworthy, garden as classified by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.
