The beautiful village of Le Thoureil is a 15 minute walk from us here at le tasting room. It’s always calm and serene whatever the weather, whatever the time of year. We always drive through the village on our way back from the station in Angers after collecting clients who have come down from Paris for a wine tasting day trip.

A change of pace in the Loire from Paris
Paris is busy as always during August despite a distinct lack of Parisians! Here in the Loire we continue as normal and take pleasure in sharing our calm way of life in the countryside with fellow wine lovers looking for a change of pace. The TGV provides a direct service to Angers St Laud and yesterday we welcomed 3 couples down here for the day. With temperatures a little cooler than of late, it was fresh enough to take pleasure roaming around the vineyard examining the vines as well as doing plenty of wine tasting.7 Aug, 2013
