The Loire Valley, the ‘Garden of France’, has intrinsic beauty in its natural landscape and many fine châteaux, churches and monasteries. Staying in the heart of the region, our weekend includes a visit to the extraordinary cellars at La Jarnoterie in St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, a tasting with our Trophy-winning Saumur winemakers from Domaine de la Cune and a visit to one of our Anjou winemakers. We have either a trip to Angers where we have lunch and a visit to the Chateau to view the remnants of the Tapestry of the Apocalypse, or if you prefer have a stroll around the town, or in alternate years we have lunch near Saumur at Les Caves de Genevraie with Georges Bureau, a delightful restaurant set in a troglodyte cave, absolutely stunning location.
