At the heart of the Loire Valley, in the village of Chançay, between Tours (18 km) and Amboise (12 km), come and meet Myriam, the granddaughter and wife of winemakers, and live a complete wine experience at the heart of her family's winery, in the vineyard of Vouvray.
I run unique, genuine and educational wine tours in the vineyard to allow you to discover the whole wine-making process, as well as the Loire Valley wines and vineyards. Not only am I eager to share with you my knowledge of the wine-producing world but also my passion for my home region.
Various half-day wine tours, wine tastings and wine activities are scheduled throughout the year. Whether your are beginners, or wine lovers and wine amateurs, adults and children, individuals, groups, travel agencies and companies... there's a wine tour for everyone!

"That was the most wonderful wine tasting that you can imagine! Myriam is very professional but doesn't oppress you with her knowledge. She talks about wine so passionately that you are drawn into this world and want to know more and more. She answers all your questions (silly as they may be) and takes time to explain all the details. The tasting itself was magnificent, especially interesting were the explanations about all the combinations with regional delicacies. That was almost like a proper meal. Thanks to her we are now fans of Nougat du Tours and will definitely try to recreate it at home (although only certified bakers are allowed to name their creation by this proud name). We had small children with us and were very worried that they may be bored but they could play freely around the vineyards and had many glasses of wonderful grape juice, so that they could also taste their Vouvray. All in all - great tour and tasting and thanks so much!!!" (Maria Peker on Google, September 2021)
"We visited the vineyard, the winery and the caves of Vignoble Alain Robert over 3 hours on a wonderful tour. Our host Myriam was delightful, her English excellent, and she had
huge knowledge of everything wine, from vines to bottle to tasting. This tour will suit anyone really interested in the making of wine whether you know a lot or little about the subject. We
highly recommend this tour....and a few of the Alain Robert wines!!" (Australiaholly on Tripadvisor, September 2019)
"Highlight of the trip to the Loire Valley"
"I booked the three-hour "From Vine to Wine" tour of the vineyard, winery, and cellar followed by tastings of 6 wines plus samples of excellent locally prepared food --
and every moment was a delight. Myriam, our guide and a member of the owners' family was almost exhaustively knowledgable about each aspect of the process, but it was not at all exhausting to
listen to her as we walked because her charm, good humor, and obvious love of the land made for a fascinating afternoon. This tour would be fine for both a novice and a wine connoisseur. The
Vouvray wines surprised me - only one was "sweet" and even that was pleasing! And the pairings with local foods was sublime; quite beyond my expectations. All excellent value!"
