Pouilly sur Loire - a town of fine white wines

The town of Pouilly sur Loire sits on the banks of the River Loire in the department of Nièvre in Burgundy. It is world famous for its superb white wines. Pouilly sur Loire is not a large town, but it features on all the best wine tours and is revered by wine buffs the world over. The town of Sancerre, Pouilly sur Loire's rival in the wine industry, lies opposite on the other bank of the River Loire.

Wildlife haven

Pouilly sur Loire has another point of interest besides its wines, and that lies in its abundance of wildlife. Quiet riverside settings are a perfect place to see all manner of unusual flora and fauna, and this little town offers plenty of both. Over 190 species of bird have been reported as being seen and identified here, as have many rare species of fish in the clean waters of the river at this point on its journey. The respect given to the wildlife here is also unusual in France, where in the winter months hunters roam the fields shooting at (seemingly) anything that moves. Around Pouilly sur Loire the hunters are only allowed to use bows and arrows to hunt instead of guns... although it is doubtful that this makes them any less deadly to the creature on the receiving end!
