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.
