Wine Tours, Tastings, Breaks and Trips


I’m Cathy. I’m an English wine professional living in the Loire valley for the past 18 years and when I’m not directly working for Loire valley winemakers, I run small group wine tours for wine lovers visiting the region with my husband Nigel.

If you’re looking for a peek at what happens behind the scenes in the Loire then come and spend a day with us.

Our unique small group Loire wine tours around Amboise are always in English  and day trips from Paris and 2 day wine tours are also available and always led by us, owners of Le Tasting Room.

If a unique wine tour with lots of wine tasting around Amboise in the Loire valley, a top quality lunch and a winery visit with small groups of like minded people is what you looking for then our Loire Wine Discovery day is perfect for you. Available as a day trip from Paris it’s an easy direct journey that takes just an hour. Most of our tours are available as day trips from Paris and Cathy can give you all the information you need for booking your trains to the Loire.

Between November and March we offer private tours so do get in touch for more information.

Tours is a beautiful small city and ideal for a short break. Let us organise something tailor-made just for you.
