Relax as we drive alongside the beautiful river Loire and arrive at le tasting room in time for coffee/tea and biscuits.
Enjoy a tutored tasting of 6 wines reflecting the diversity of this great winemaking region. Cathy will run through the basics of tasting technique, discuss the geography of the region and unravel the mysteries of French wine labeling in the relaxed environment of our 16th century tasting room.
Relax with an aperitif before a delicious 3 course lunch. A typical menu would be marinated chicken breasts with roasted mediterranean vegetables or oven baked cod with a pea, leek and lardon ragout, a top quality cheeseboard from renowned fromager Pascal Beillevaire, and a tarte au citron or plum clafoutis – all accompanied by wines from the region.
After lunch we stroll around the beautiful riverside village of Le Thoureil. This ‘petite cité de caractère’ is an ancient mariner’s port that remains totally unspoilt today. Calm and beautiful, the old limestone houses have stunning terraces with wonderful views of the river. If you are a keen photographer this is something not to be missed.
