Chateau de Bois-Brinçon in Anjou has its open house on Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd April. Great wines from this bio-dynamic producer in Anjou.
What is grattage? The literal translation from French would be ‘scratching’ but what does that mean when related to vineyards?
For a really easy dinner try this really simple marinade. It works well on chicken thighs or breasts and is healthy and quick to prepare.
Both the Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc are flowering here at Le Tasting Room. Here in Anjou we are always a little behind the vineyards further east where many vines have finished flowering and the fruit has set.
We both prefer the dark meat, preferring the juicy, tender leg meat to the breast so last night I decided to spice up the remaining breasts! Here what you need to do make a lovely spicy mid-week dinner that requires little work and really hits the spot.
Ok, so you’re staying in Angers in the Loire and you love wine and you think ‘right, it’s Sunday tomorrow, let’s go wine tasting’.
Things are really taking shape here at le tasting room in the Loire valley. Our new home is semi-troglodytic (partially built into the rock face).
