• Winter wine tours in the Loire

Wineries start to shut their doors after harvest has finished but here at le tasting room, we offer a day tour that is perfectly suited to the chilly winter weather.

We spend the morning tasting a range of wines in the comfort of our cosy tasting room.  It’s a chance to taste wines from a range of different appellations, understand the different terroirs, unravel French wine labelling and get to know the personalities behind the wines as we know them all well and take great pleasure in introducing them to you.  We then move upstairs to our 16th century barn where we enjoy an aperitif before enjoying a relaxing lunch in our traditional French kitchen.  If the weather is bitter, we light the wood burning stove –  lovely to feel cucooned inside while the world outside is cold and uninviting.

If the weather permits, we’ll take a stroll around the beautiful riverside village of Le Thoureil – beautiful at any time of year, it was an important trading port during centuries gone by and today remains unspoilt.

Available from now until the end of November and during February 2014,  our  one day winter wine tours in the Loire countryside make a perfect change of pace from Paris and are an easy, relaxing day trip.

150€ per person including collection from and return back to Angers TGV station.
