Loire Wine Tours and Tastings 2018
Our 2018 season is open and we are looking forward to sharing our passion for life in the Loire with you this year. Most growers have finished pruning (with one or two exceptions in very frost prone areas) and we eagerly await bud burst which is normally at the beginning of April. All fingers are crossed for a frost free season this year after 2 very difficult years for local growers. A third year with late frost would be very bad news indeed as volumes have been seriously compromised recently (not just in the Loire but all over France, Italy and Spain).
Are you looking for a real glimpse of life and wine in the Loire valley? Our tours are different. We welcome you to our home and workplace, a beautiful old farmhouse in the countryside, we cook you lunch ourselves and we introduce you to the wines of the region, tell their stories and share their trials and tribulations. We take you out into the vineyards and we introduce you to our friends and colleagues who have been making wine in this historic and underrated wine region for centuries.
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.
Staying in Paris? Why not spend a day or two in the beautiful Loire countryside. The TGV offers an excellent direct service to Angers. What’s more, we’ll collect you and deliver you back to the station. You’re sure to fall in love with this wonderful wine region – the best kept secret in France.
Our tours are small and personal (between 2 and 7 people) and are always guided by us, Cathy & Nigel Henton, the owners. If you’re looking for a real glimpse of what life is like working with winemakers in the Loire, we’d love to see you here in 2017.
A bientôt! See you here soon!
