My wife and I spent the day with Amanda and her colleague Jane in June of 2012. They picked us up from the train station and dropped us off--much happier--at our hotel. Both Amanda and Jane shared their knowledge of wine and the area without...More
We had a wonderful day with Loire Uncorked. Amanda is a very knowledgable guide, and very friendly. We weren't sure what to expect, but this was the hi-light of our trip. We especially loved visiting the caves!
A belated thank you for a really enjoyable trip with Loire Uncorked round local wineries when I came to stay in the area last September. Amanda was just great and obviously knew her stuff as well as being on good terms with all the various...More
We booked with Loire Uncorked because we had read the great reviews here on tripadvisor. We had a magical day visiting some great vineyards in Bourgueil and Vouvray. Amanda knew the winemakers well and we looked round caves from the middle ages and met families...More

We spent Monday with Amanda, visiting wineries In Chinon, Bourgueil, and Vouvray. And an excellent lunch in Chicon. It was great fun and we learned a huge amount about French wine-- the terroir, not the grape, is what counts!
And that is exactly what it was. We were collected from our hotel by "Mandy" (hope she doesn"t mind "Mandy") & driven to various vineyards around the area; stopping for a typical french lunch in the country accompanied by selected wines.
Mandy certainly new her...More
Travelling alone, abroad, is often done with trepedation, but have no fears, with" Loire Uncorked". I was made very welcome from the start, Amanda, always made sure I was comfortable within the group, without being patronising or intrusive (as can so often be the case,...More
We have always wanted to visit a vineyard but because our French was not up to scratch we felt quite nervous. Finding Loire Uncorked on the internet was a godsend for us.. Amanda organised everything for us, nothing was too much..
