Overview

We provide full day and half day wine tours and tastings here, in one of France's most exiting wine areas. For the half day tour you will visit the caves, and the production facilities, walk through the vineyards and be led though an in-depth tasting. The full day "immersion" tour includes a meal in a local village restaurant full of the ambiance of a French wine producing village. Refreshments at "chez nous" before and after the tour. Brochures on the wine and wine region a complimentary bottle of our excellent, award winning local bubbles Led by a qualified and knowledgeable guide who was a wine buyer and who has also lived in the region since 2001, you can expect to taste the full range of award winning wine from this part of the Loire. We pride ourselves on the relaxed way which we conduct our tours. There is no wine snobbery and we are happy to tailor the tours to those who already know and appreciate these wonderful wines to those who are complete beginners. We have accommodation for which we are happy to give a privileged rate of €50 per night or, if we are already full, we will find you a quality chambres d'hotes in the village. Merci bien et a bientot Brian
