From vine to wine tour
This 3-hour tour begins with a guided walk in the vineyard - where everything starts, as no good wine can be made without growing quality grapes in the first place! You will learn about French 'AOCs' (Appellations of Controlled Origin) in general and about AOC Vouvray - which is produced in this area of the Loire Valley - in particular, about vine-growing and the vinegrower's work in the vines throughout the year. This guided walk will also be the opportunity for you to enjoy the beautiful vineyard landscapes and to discover troglodytes - traditional Loire Valley dwellings dug in the limestone.
We will then tour the family-owned winery and the rock-hewn cellar to learn about vinification, ageing and the traditional method, which is the process we use to make our sparkling wines.
We will finish our wine tour with a tutored tasting of 6 Vouvray/Touraine/Loire wines served with slate boards of local delicacies (Loire fish rillettes, various local cheeses and charcuteries, a local dessert...) to learn about wine tasting and about food and wine pairing.
This wine tour is adapted to both beginners or wine amateurs. Our speech is adapted to everyone's knowledge about wine.
