 The fun of learning about Loire wines and meeting one of the owners of a wine estate is, in my book, one of the best ways of getting to know the wines of the Loire. So it was that our four guests Catherine and Sam and Sharon and Nick took the plunge and spent an enjoyable lunch and afternoon at such an estate. A short introduction at Manoir de Gourin before journeying over to have lunch with Brigitte the owner and then taking a good look at the vineyard, wine room and caves to see how it all comes together to produce such wonderful wines.

Oh joy upon joy.

A wine tasting dinner at Manoir de Gourin with our guests in the elegant dinning room. We match each course with wine from the Loire valley France. It’s so easy because of the diversity of styles we have in the lovely Loire. Dry to sweet whites, fruity to complex reds, dry and medium pinks and all colours of bubbly. What a wonderful life.

In the vineyard learning about the farming practices

Loirewinetoursblog loirewinetoursblog.co.uk

Surely there cannot be a better way of passing the day than to taste the wines of the Loire valley and to meet the real people who make it. So today in the morning we met Vincent to taste his Anjou wines and this afternoon we met Pierre and his wife Brigitte to taste their Saumur wines. In between we had a very simple but so enjoyable lunch at the domaine. What more do you need than that! Our guests Hermine, Susan and Kevin all enjoyed our day that started in the ‘classroom’ at Manoir de Gourin with yours truly making the introduction to the wines of the Loire.
