Loire Vouvray Wine Tasting

Experience a deep dive into the wonders of the Chenin Blanc grape (Pineau de la Loire, as it is known locally), tasting delicious Loire whites, be they dry, sparkling or a little sweet. Visit a family-owned estate full of character, and a grander version of Vouvray at a large producer. Both stops feature wine estate visits and generous tastings. Whether you come on the mid morning train to Tours and enjoy a leisurely lunch on your own before the tasting tour, or come just before the tour departure, we’ll book your train as you prefer.

Loire Valley Vouvray Half Day Trip Itinerary

High-speed TGV rail takes you an amazing 145 miles in about an hour.  Upon arrival in the city of Tours, meet your guide at the nearby tourist office and begin a special afternoon discovering the depth of Loire whites as represented by the Vouvray appellation. Vouvray wines are made in 8 villages around the town of Vouvray, north of the Loire River. Area wine-making dates back to the Middle Ages; Vouvray is one of the oldest recognized appellations in France.

Visit of a small family producer

Varying by time of year, your small family producer visit gives a taste of life on a small domain. It’s all hands on deck for pruning, harvest and vinting. That means you might get a tour from the owner himself. A bonus is a chance to taste a vintage numbering just a few hundred cases, a bottle that might never be exported. Truly a personal visit.

Visit of Large Vouvray Wine Producer

Getting to know the great variety of whites of Vouvray means visiting a large estate. You’ll come to appreciate just how much one grape can offer.  A highlight is a visit to tenth-century limestone caves for more tastes.
