Loire Valley wine discovery
with your private wine experts
Interested in wine? You’re sure to enjoy our Loire Wine Discovery day. Suitable for any level from complete beginner to dedicated oenophile, spend your day with Cathy and Nigel, both WSET Diploma graduates.
Make your way with your private driver to a 16th century tasting room for a 10h00 start with coffee and biscuits made by local producer Le Vinaillou.
Enjoy a tutored tasting of 6 Loire Valley wines reflecting the diversity of this great winemaking region in the comfort of Cathy and Nigel’s tasting room.
You 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 moving into the candlelit cellar for a delicious home-made 3 course lunch with wine in their old barrel maturation cellar beneath the house. Indulge in a selection of dishes creatively prepared using local ingredients sourced from their neighbouring potager, and herbs from their garden.
After lunch your chauffeur drive you to one of the many famous Loire appellations and visit a winery where you’ll have the chance to taste a range of wines and stroll around the vineyards.
An extra day or two of winery visits is a lovely way to consolidate all that you’ll have learnt with them.
