GO OFF-ROAD IN THE LOIRE VINEYARDS & SAIL THE LOIRE RIVER - 1 DAY PACKAGE 2 NIGHT STAY

 

The Loire Valley Vineyard's first off-road wine tour is brought to you by La Grande Maison. Only for those with a true sense of adventure and not for the faint hearted. We discover the vineyards & hidden wineries of the Loire region with an experienced bi-lingual wine guide in our 4x4 Land Rover Defender.

We go off-road and onto the trails and tracks through the vines. Along the way we discover the viticulture of the area, learn about grape varieties and the difference between organic, biodynamic and natural wines.

We stop off at some of the best wineries, meet the winemakers and taste the wines. There is even an opportunity to buy the wines at cellar door prices.

Ready for lunch and we simply pull over and set up our legendary vineyard picnic in the vines, a cork screw always on hand to open a chilled bottle of Saumur Blanc or Saumur Champigny.
