We’ve teamed up with local brewery ART IS AN ALE BREWING to combine wine and beer in a full day tour that combines the very best of both worlds. Taste a range of wines from all over the Loire valley during the morning, enjoy a home cooked lunch in a private home and then discover the world of craft beer in the afternoon.
The tour starts from Le Tasting Room in Noizay, a small village in the heart of the Vouvray wine production area just 10 minutes from Amboise.
Tasting a range of wines from all over the Loire valley, candlelit farm style 3 course lunch, chance to buy wine at cellar door prices, private tour of local craft brewery ART IS AN ALE BREWING, tasting of 4 signature beers plus 2 seasonals.

Enjoy a tutored tasting of 6 wines reflecting the diversity of this great winemaking region in the comfort of our tasting room. We run through the basics of tasting technique, discuss the geography of the region and unravel the mysteries of French wine labelling.
Relax in the garden with an aperitif before a delicious home-made 3 course lunch with wine. Indulge in a selection of dishes creatively prepared using local ingredients sourced from our local markets, herbs from our garden and a selection of cheeses from top quality supplier Rudolphe le Meunier.
In the afternoon we drive to ART IS AN ALE BREWING, a thriving craft brewery in the centre of Amboise where we’ll have a private tour with the owners. Katie, (originally from California), met her French husband Matt, while studying photography in Denton Texas.
