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.

Loire valley pumpkins & squashes
Bowls of steaming soup and pumpkin pie, guess the weight of the pumpkin and the biggest display of pumpkins and squashes I’ve ever seen in my life.1 Nov, 2016
Why is pruning so important?
There are different ways to prune vines. Here in the Loire in Anjou we see a lot of Single Guyot and Double Guyot pruning, a cane replacement system.2 Feb, 2017
Le Tasting Room starting again
In our village, we return to the calm just like we had in Cumeray although we have street lights and mains drains. I never thought I’d see the day when I’d be excited about that!14 Jan, 2019
Wine education – mildew in grape vines, what’s all the fuss this year?
Downy mildew is indigenous to north-eastern North America where it spread from wild vines into cultivated vineyards. It probably came over to Europe during the phylloxera crises when native American rootstock were being tested for their resistance to the disease that wiped out around two thirds of Europe’s vineyards.11 Jul, 2018
Fête des bateaux – Le Thoureil
Yesterday was the annual Fête des Bateaux. The weather was pretty awful but this didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of the boatsmen and women who gathered in the pretty riverside village of Le Thoureil to celebrate life on the river.28 Apr, 2014
Recipes from Le Tasting Room’s kitchen – pastry for quiches and savoury dishes
You can buy pastry in any French supermarket and I certainly don’t judge anyone for using it as it saves time, comes rolled and is ready to slide into a tin. But, it’s not quite as good as homemade. Probably because when I make my own I use rather large quantities of really good fresh butter27 May, 2018
