International Wine Days
Did you know that certain days of the year honor grape varieties or types of wine? Riesling is thus celebrated on March 13th, Malbec on April 17th ... The 3rd Thursday of November is synonymous with the release of Beaujolais Nouveau and the 4th Friday ofJune is World Rosé Day (just at the beginning of summer, it couldn't have been better!) A good way to enhance these grape varieties and styles of wine, and to make the countries or regions that produce them better known.

Harvest 2020: the first grapes were cut on August 31st at the family winery, Vignoble Alain Robert. A very early date in the Loire Valley, where the harvest normally begins at the end of September. This article is meant to give you some explanations about the purpose and interest of hand harvest as opposed to machine harvest, and to share a beautiful video filmed by an American visitor who took part in one of our Loire Wine Tours at harvest time in September 2017.
