Discover the loire  Valley wines and the vineyard Differently

Tired of traditional and impersonal wine tours during which a guide drives you from winery to winery, where you don't get to meet the winemaker and where an employee will have you taste wines you won't even remember? If this is the case, our unique wine tours and wine tastings are made for you!

Myriam offers you to live off the beaten path wine tours and wine tastings in the Loire Valley, directly in the vineyard or in more unexpected places.

'Of wines and boats ' - €45/person


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 the 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).

- Saturday 27th June at 6pm from Amboise

Biking along the Loire is a must-do in the Loire Valley. Get off the beaten path and follow Myriam in the vineyard of Vouvray!


Starting from the family winery, Vignoble Alain Robert in Chançay, you will discover the landscapes between the Loire and the Brenne valleys.

The ride - approximately 12 km / 19 miles - will be the opportunity to discover private chateaux and traditional and local buildings that used to play a significant role in the vinegrowers' lives.

You will taste 4 Vouvray and Touraine wines in the vineyard, directly on the plots of land where the grapes were produced and harvested. One last wine will be served upon arrival at the winery, in the rock-hewn cellar. The wines are all served with local finger food (fish rillettes, charcuterie, cheeses, local dessert...)
