We were there to catch up with Bernard Fouquet of Domaine des Aubuissieres, one of the top growers in the region and whose wines we regularly include in our tutored Loire wine tastings here at le tasting room. Bernard estimates that he has lost the equivalent of 60,000 bottles this year due to the hailstorm of June 17th 2013.

The whole day was fabulous … had a great time and came away much better informed about the region and its wines.
A wonderful fun filled informative trip and if anyone reading this is wondering if it’s for them…. yes it is, you’ll love it!
