We had a wonderful day trip to the Loire Valley. Le Tasting Room is owned and operated by a delightful British couple who share a love of French wine and food. Cathy picked us up at the Angers train station, about a 90 minute trip from Paris. We had a lovely drive along the River Loire before arriving at their... More

Stopped off en route to the Le Mans Classic for a wonderful journey through the wines of the Loire courtesy of Cathy and Nigel at Le Tasting Room. They accommodated our differing palates in an unpretentious, educational and enjoyable day, culminating in a relaxing lunch in their atmospheric cellar. Highly recommended for anyone interested in sampling a range of what... More

Highly recommended, easy day trip from Paris. We persevered with the train strikes to arrive in scenic Loire Valley greeted by delightful Cathy. So glad we did, everything was as promised. We had THE most fun day tasting wines, having lunch, visiting a vineyard. Lots of interesting information about history, the land, and of course, wine! Lots of laughs, too.... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review of our recent day together. It was lovely for us to see you taking so much pleasure in the wines and of course our time out on the river was wonderful. Great to be back on the water in 2014 with Alain in the beautiful Le Thoureil.... More

Cathy and Nigel made us feel right at home from the minute we met them and alleviated all anxieties we had about traveling out of country for the first time. Their knowledge of wine is amazing and even more amazing was the meal they prepared for us that we enjoyed in their wine cellar. An experience we will never forget.... More
