• A wonderful Loire Wine Discovery day

Last week we had a wonderful day with 3 lovely people from Georgia.  It was one of those days when everything just clicked into place and we all had a lovely, relaxed day.  We shared our lives here in the Loire with them and we learnt about their lives too.  We drank wine and shared lunch, visited a vineyard and tasted in a local winery.

Grapes are looking healthy at the moment – all fingers are crossed for a sucessful 2014 after 2 very difficult years.

Nothing beats getting close to the vines.

So a big thank you to Aaron, Jeanette and Jacob for choosing to spend the day with us – it was one of the best.
