Guided tour in the vineyard of Vouvray

Do you know how to make a sweet wine, or a rosé and a red wine? What about the bubbles in a sparkling wine?...  This complete wine experience at the heart of a family winery - a guided wine tour run by Myriam, a wine professional and the wife of the owner and winemaker - will allow you to discover the whole wine-making process, from grape to wine.


This 3-hour tour starts with a guided walk in the vineyard of Vouvray, to learn about 'AOCs' and this area of production in particular, about vine-growing and the vinegrower's work in the vines throughout the year. This is where everything starts - no good wine can be made without growing quality grapes in the first place!

We will then tour the family-owned winery and the rock-hewn cellar to learn about vinification, ageing and the traditional method, which is the process we use to make our sparkling wines. Depending on the date of your visit, you may be able to attend wine-bottling, disgorgement, labelling or even machine or hand harvest?

We will finish the tour with a tutored tasting of 6 Vouvray/Touraine/Loire wines served with slate boards of local food to learn about food and wine pairing.


This wine tour is adapted to both beginners or wine amateurs (we've already had American sommeliers taking part in this tour). We will adapt our speech to everyone's knowledge about wine.
