We had such a great day with you both. Michael and I kept telling everyone it was like hanging out with two friends who just happened to know a lot about wine (and who could cook really well too!).

Cycling holidays in the Loire
Wine is our thing so we leave the cycling to our friends Ali and Jon at Loire Life Cycling Holidays. Located close to Saumur they offer self-guided centre based cycling holidays. Their premium holiday is the Loire Valley Discovery Cycling Tour which includes a unique evening meal and wine tasting experience here at le tasting room.10 Jan, 2014
What was this syringe used for?
Do you know what this syringe was used for? I’ll give you a clue. It’s hanging on the wall of a well known Saumur Champigny producer and has a wine connection.
Any ideas?7 Jan, 2014
Happy New Year 2014
At the end of the day wine is something to be shared and enjoyed. A carafe of wine with no visible origin served on the terrace of our local café overlooking the Loire, a bottle of Crémant with friends before a relaxed dinner in the kitchen, a sample of the new vintage taken from tank with the winemaker, a cherished bottle from the cellar. It’s all about enjoyment, discussion, pleasure and sharing.2 Jan, 2014
Cathy’s Loire Wine Tours – My favourite bottles – Chateau des Vaults, Crémant de Loire
The Loire is well known for its quality sparkling wines but how about this one from Chateau de Vaults, best known for its great Savennières. A non-dosage wine it’s dry and crisp and has great character.28 May, 2011
