I loved the mix of
vintners & appreciated
being taken to smaller
family domains and
speaking to the people
who work with the wine
daily. Today's tour
fortuitously focused on
different stages of the
which made the day
even more special as far
as understanding the
whole venture. Thanks
for taking care to select
each domain according
to our interests and level
of experience. A+.

Ever wondered just how wine is made?
Do they still tread the grapes?
What makes a good wine really great
or a cheap wine nasty?
Here at Loire Uncorked our wine tours explain the
process, give you the pleasure to taste which wines
you really enjoy and so make an informed decision.
We want to dispel the myth that wine tasting is a bit
pretentious. Our wine tours are fun but at the same
time informative and suitable for newcomers and
old hands alike. The Loire region is noted for it's
fantastic range of wines.
Imagine,you'll be picked up from your hotel or gite,
taken along the beautiful Loire countryside, passing
fairytale chateau, Trolglodyte cave dwellings,
watching the pavement cafes bustling with locals
then you'll be taken to some fantastic vineyards.
Here in the Loire there are some great wines, still
realistically priced unlike some Burgundies and
Bordeaux but every bit as interesting, many better,
some, world class.
You can top up your cellar, get some great bubbly
for that family celebration or just buy some great
wine to take home, whatever you like.
After visiting a couple of vineyards you'll have a
delicious local lunch in one of our specially selected
restaurants. Replete, you will visit your last
vineyard of the day.
Then you'll be dropped off back at your hotel or gite
and left to muse on the day and maybe even sample
one of the scrummy bottles you bought along the
What better way to spend a day?
If you would like to give one of our great wine tours
as an unforgettable gift then we can arrange that.
