Staying in the heart of this beautiful region, we will visit La Jarnoterie and dine in their magnificent cellar under the vines.
Enjoy superb wine tastings with 3D vingerons from Saumur, St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil and Anjou.
Take in the views of spectacular scenery and striking châteaux.
We begin our weekend with a tasting by Jean-Albert Mary from Domaine de la Cune of his award-winning Saumur wines. Jean-Albert will then join us for dinner with more of his delicious wine.
On Friday morning we head off to St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil to meet Carine and Dider Rezé at La Jarnoterie. We enjoy a memorable tour and tasting of their wines deep down under the vines in their family cellar, the impressive Caves de Cochamtorille. Here we join them for a memorable lunch in their magnificent private banqueting chamber dominated by a huge circular stone table, overlooked by an enormous fireplace.
Saturday morning we visit Gilles Sorin at Domaine de la Motte for a visit and tasting of his award winning Coteaux du Layon wine. Afterwards we lunch in Angers with the opportunity to visit the famous Chateau, where you can view the famous tapestry of the Apocolypse or have a stroll around the town. Then we head back to the hotel to maybe enjoy a swim and relax before dinner.
We depart after breakfast on Sunday, or for those wanting to extend their stay to take in more of this beautiful region, we can book extra nights for you.
