Gourmet visit of Sancerre

The favorite village of the French

June 30, 2021 will remain, in Sancerre, as an important date! It is indeed on this day that Stéphane Bern revealed the name of the winning village of the tenth edition of the "Favorite Village of the French": Sancerre!

It must be said that Sancerre has many assets. Walking through its narrow streets, discovering its impressive panoramas such as the esplanade Porte César, the garden of the town hall, the ramparts, admiring its listed buildings such as the Tour des Fiefs or the Belfry, it is to plunge with happiness into a medieval city out of the ordinary which, perched at the top of its peak, dominates the surrounding vineyards and the Loire which is, as everyone knows, the last wild river of Europe!

 

And the gourmet visit?

You can visit Sancerre in two different ways.
The first is to follow the "Ariadne's thread". Traced on the ground, it leads you to twenty-eight points of interest, which are presented, as you go along, by explanatory panels. It starts at the esplanade Porte César, where the tourist office of the Grand Sancerrois is also located.
The second is the famous gourmet tour! It is a guided tour of about two hours, that you can book at the tourist office, during which your guide will make you discover the city, of course, but also its history, with some anecdotes! And, hence its name, it will end with a tasting of local products!
