At the end of the afternoon’s escorted and ‘tutored’ “Wine Tasting Discovery Tour” with our guests last week, Angela, Andrew, Bernard and Jan, at the organic vineyard of the Domaine de la Paleine, within walking distance of our holiday gites, making visits all the more enjoyable!

 

Angela, Andrew, Jan and Bernard, have been returning wine guests since we moved to the Loire Valley in 2001, so naturally they were welcomed with a few glasses of chilled sparkling Saumur Rosé Brut ‘Method Tradionelle’  bubbly after their journey from the UK!

We do so love their comments in our guest book and this one made us feel happy! It said:-

“Another superb holiday in your beautiful part of France! Le Sauvignon is a lovely comfortable gite and your friendly hospitality guaranteed a memorable holiday which was all too short! Many thanks to you Brian for the private Wine Tasting and Tour of the local vineyards which was easily the most enjoyable and interesting one we have ever experienced. We are glad we didn’t miss that! We spent lovely days at interesting places such as Fontenvraud and Montsoreau but sadly eventually ran out of time so we will have to return! Hope the car suspension can cope with all the boxes of wine”!  Voila and Au revoir!

They enjoyed their week’s wine trail around the Loire vineyards and really did struggle to get their boxes into the car!  But as they explained it was for a good reason, as Angela and Andrew’s daughter was getting married next month and they wanted to have the Loire Wines for the big day!  Nice idea!!

 

 

…….. wishing everybody a really Happy Easter Weekend and some warm sunny days!

A bientot!

Sheila and Brian

Loire Valley Wine Tours

 

Take a look at our new website. You can take an informative and entertaining ‘ Wine Discovery Tour’ during your gite holiday. You will have a personal guided tour of the winery including meeting the winemaker, walking the vineyards and galleries of underground caves learning about winemaking methods, then afterwards an extensive ‘tutored tasting’ of their wines. Combine your stay with a visit to Saumur – see the imposing fairytale chateau overlooking the Loire, just one of many local attractions in the Loire Valley France. See our “What to do in the Loire” page
