Wine tasting on traditional boats on the river Loire

The Loire River offers a perfect setting to taste the wines produced in the area. Did you know that until the mid 19th century, the wines produced in the Loire Valley were transported on River Loire, either towards Paris or to the city of Nantes, from where they were then shipped abroad?

 

Since 2017, Myriam and Millière Raboton, a company that throughout the year organises rides on the Loire aboard traditional wooden boats, have been offering wine and food tastings on boats.

Depending on the dates, the rides start either in Chaumont-sur-Loire, from the harbour located at the foot of the chateau, or in Amboise, from l’île d'Or, just opposite the chateau.

They last about 4 hours and are the opportunity to taste 5 Loire wines - one served directly on the boats, the others on a sandbar along or in the middle of the river. The wines are served with local delicacies (you won't need to have dinner after the tour, as there is sufficient food served with the wines).
