Loire Wine Tours, Paris Day Trips & Tastings 2018

Looking for more than just a wine tour?

We’re qualified English wine professionals and we invite you to our home and workplace, a beautiful old farmhouse in the Anjou countryside for an insider’s look at what it’s like to live and work in the Loire valley wine trade. We introduce you to the wines of the region, cook you a 3 course lunch and take you out into the vineyards to meet our friends and colleagues who have been making wine in this historic and underrated wine region for centuries.

Our wine tours are small and personal and always guided by us, Cathy & Nigel Henton, the owners.

After an exceedingly wild and wet couple of weeks at the beginning of June, the summer weather has settled in and the Loire is bathing sunshine. Unfortunately for the growers, the excessive rain and accompanying humid weather have led to high levels of downy mildew in the vineyards and this has been a particular problem for organic growers. This will have quite an impact upon yields at the end of the season, a blow to those that have already suffered terrible losses in the past 2 seasons to late frost.

If you’re looking for an English speaking wine tour in the Loire valley or a fantastic wine day trip from Paris, come and see for yourself!
