Whilst Brittany is not known for its wine production, the location of some Breton holiday properties is ideal for day trips to the Loire Valley and opportunities to taste and buy delicious red Chinon and sparkling Vouvray wines. Brittany itself is better known for its ciders. The high density of rain in the winter combined with warm summers is the perfect combination for apple-growing. You'll find plenty of producers offering cider-tasting and it makes for a delicious and traditional accompaniment to Breton galettes and crepes, savoury and sweet pancakes,! Also try a Breton kir made with cassis and cider, a classic summer tipple.
