Loire Wine Tours and Tastings 2015
It seems now that summer has finally arrived. The days are long and sunny and the vineyards are looking lush and green. Budburst took place here in Anjou at the beginning of April and this year the growers were lucky enough not to have any sharp frosts to worry about. We are currently at the end of flowering and weather conditions have been pretty good ensuring a relatively even fruit set. Things are looking good here in the Loire.
Now is the time to dust yourself down, pack your suitcase and head to the countryside. Summer is a wonderful time to be here in the Loire vineyards. The weather is great (not too hot but lovely and sunny) and the wines from 2014 are in the tasting rooms. 2014 is looking promising after the 2 very difficult vintages of 2012 and 2013. Whites have lovely precision and there is nice fruit, weight and structure on the reds (although you’ll have to wait a little longer for some of them as they are still ageing gracefully at the moment). We hope very much that you will take the opportunity to visit beautiful Anjou, far from the hustle and bustle of Paris here in the beautiful Loire countryside just a stone’s throw from the river Loire.
If you’re interested in discovering the wines of the Loire valley then do come and see us and let us show you the wonderfully diverse array of wine styles from this region. You’ll have the opportunity to get out into the vineyards and understand the vineyard year and exchange stories from all sides of the world over a delicious home-cooked lunch. Allow us the pleasure of welcoming you to our home and business in a sleepy hamlet forming part of a UNESCO World Heritage site just a stone’s throw from the river Loire. Come and join us for a unique and memorable day and let us share our passion for the wines of the Loire valley.
