Vitiloire 2023. All about the gastronomic event of the Loire, in May


WHERE: Tours, France
WHEN: 27 – 28 May 2023

The Loire. A fascinating place, between history and nature, with the evocative Castles, famous throughout the world.
A land of great tradition, and above all, noble vineyards. Indeed, the wines awarded the AOC label are 79.

In this context, Vitiloire fits perfectly, an unmissable eno-gastronomic appointment, in the splendid Tours. An appointment that returns after two years of closure due to the Pandemic.

The last weekend of May awaits an intense weekend to discover the best wines of the Region, through tastings, workshops and many activities. Also for children.

Vitiloire is an excellent opportunity to discover Tours, the international city of Gastronomy.
A real spot of the savoir-faire of this land; of a cultural, patrimonial and gastronomic richness, of an entire Region.

The numbers of the last edition speak of a great success, with more than 35000 visitors in just two days.




By plane, Paris is a great base to get to Tours, landing in one of the Airports of Capital. By train, or by renting a car, you can easily get to your destination.
Gare de Tours is one of the most important railway stations in the Loire Valley. From here, numerous TGV, TER and intercity pass through the main French destinations. Often, trains limit to St Pierre des Corps, railway station located around 3 kilometers east of the city center.


Also for this edition, over 3600 m² of open-air exhibition awaits you, right in the center.

A large outdoor space will be set up in the center of Tours, between Boulevard Heurteloup, the Gardens of the prefecture and the railway station. Visitors will have the opportunity to sit at the tables and eat the best dishes of 10 local chefs on the spot. A small photographic exhibition can be admired at the gates of the Prefecture Gardens.
At the Village Gourmand, the great protagonists of the local food sector will offer the best traditional dishes. Between Foie gras, rillons and rillettes de Tours, cheeses, or Torte Tourraine, you will be spoiled for choice.

The great protagonist will obviously be the wine. Workshops, oenological laboratories, tastings by producers. Around 150 major winemakers are participating in the event, representing 79 AOC labels.


As usual, the edition will take place over an entire weekend. Appointment Saturday, from 10:00 to 19:00, and Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00.

The price is 6€ for each tasting glass.


Central, and in a great location, Ibis budget Tours Center Gare et congrès offers rooms from your value for money.
Suitable for up to 4 people, the modern rooms have TV, air conditioning and WiFi. On-site parking is available for a fee, subject to availability.
The ibis Budget Tours Center Gare et Congrès hotel is 8 minutes by car from the Parc des Expositions of Tours, 600 meters from the Center de Congrès Vinci and 300 meters from the train station.
