In this episode we travel to four of Frances most important wine producing regions. Our first stop is the Loire Valley where we visit centuries' old chateaux to find out why Sancerre wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape are so exceptional. We head east to Burgundy where the region's dramatic past is as well known as its red wine. But we'll also taste Burgundy's whites from the vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. We'll explore the landscape of Van Gogh in Southern France; meet winemakers in France's legendary Chateanuef du Pape region and talk with a new breed of French winemakers who look to the New World for inspiration.
