• Spring day trips from Paris in the Loire

Spring has sprung here in the Loire and our season has kicked off in style. Many of our clients come down to the Loire for a day trip from Paris and  blessed with perfect sunny days, it’s been a pleasure to get out and about in the vineyards again this year.  We’ve had an early budburst and  have a couple of inches of growth on the vines.  All our hopes are now pinned on a frost free month.  Mornings are still cool and so the chance of a frost is still a real possibility right up until late May.
