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
Recipes from Le Tasting Room’s kitchen – Puy lentils with lardons and thyme
We often serve these lentils as a side to duck confit, roasted Toulouse sausages or griddled salmon. As time has gone by I have modified the recipe to make it easier and less time consuming. You can make them the day before and reheat gently when serving so they are great to do when you have people over.22 May, 2018

See you in Touraine!
Our furniture (that has been in storage since October) arrives on Monday. We can’t wait to get everything into place and start making it into a home after 4 months in our (lovely but temporary) home.18 Jan, 2019
Wine education – hail damage in the vineyard
Hail damage is ghastly. It’s random, localised and destructive and can wipe out a crop in minutes. That’s what happened here last week.7 Jun, 2021
What’s going on in the Loire valley vineyards in June?
Well it’s been a strange month. For the first three weeks of June the weather was rather dull and cool and then we got a shock!2 Jul, 2019
