Le Tasting Room was a very pleasant experience. Located in a beautiful area of the Loire Valley with a beautiful tasting room, a wine cave and wine presentations by Kathy and Nigel in a fun, friendly and knowledgeable way. No intimidation here...just warmth, friendliness and useful information. We now know how to read the label on a French wine bottle.... More

We learnt a great deal about Loire wines and the information was brought to life by entertaining insights into the family histories of the local Loire wine producers. A delicious lunch in their 16th century barrel vaulted cellar accompanied by excellent wine and a relaxed... More

Cathy and Nigel picked us up at our hotel and spent the day showing us tasting rooms, and then vineyards of the Loire Valley. We started our day over coffee, getting an orientation to the region.Cathy and Nigel have... More

This is something really special if you are visiting this area of the Loire! Cathy and Nigel were great fun, knowledgeable and so welcoming to their home and wine experience! We learnt so much in a very informal and very French environment. The day gave us greater insight into the life of the vineyards and the production of wines. Thank... More

Can not say enough great things about Cathy and Nigel. Had a wonderful time. Learned a lot about wine and especially Loire Valley wines. They really make you feel like old friends. Would tell anyone who goes to the area that you are missing something really great if you don't stop in and see them. Oh, did I mention the... More

We read the great reviews, but knew the this was a perfect adventure when we spoke to Cathy on the telephone. Visiting Cathy and Nigel was similar to catching up with long time friends who had moved to France. We drove to their lovely home where we were warmly greeted, especially by Sybil the dog, a bonus we did not... More
