Was a fantastic day trip out to Anjou, to learn about the region, the wines, the people and the culture. Cathy and Nigel presented a fully immersive experience with beautiful wines and a delicious lunch meal. I could not recommend highly enough.

Small grouping allows for intimate, very personal experience. Knowledge sharing, wonderful wines and delicious homemade lunch in a warm personal setting.

The tasting is located in the Loire valley. We collect from the TGV station in Angers from the Paris train and others make their own way to us. We are between Angers and Saumur just by the river in Le Thoureil.
