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.

We’ve had extremely hot weather here in the Loire since mid July and practically no rain until the day before yesterday when we had around 12mm which was gratefully received by everyone, not just the vine growers. We have veraison (when grapes change colour and start ripen) in Saumur Champigny, Chinon and St Nicolas and here in Anjou, after the recent rain set things on their way again.

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!
