Loire Harvest Wine Tour 2015 Vintage

From mid-September to the end of October we will be hosting a series of Loire Harvest Wine Tours to celebrate the 2015 vintage. There is no better time of the year than to come on a wine tour than during the harvest. Get to see the harvest up close in the vineyards, see the hand picking and machine harvesting and watch the grapes being delivered directly to the chais for pressing (for the whites) and for maceration (for the reds). If we are lucky we might also get to see the harvest by horse or the hand picking of the late harvest wines for the Coteaux du Layon, Bonnezeaux or Quart des Chaumes. You will learn about maturation and even get to taste the grapes on the vine for yourselves.
