Laure is an extremely knowledgeable and well-informed guide, and my wife and I strongly recommend Vinitour if you're interested in tasting wine and learning about viniculture in the Pouilly and Sancerre areas. Laure not only took us to three excellent wineries in the course of a full day tour, but she also drove us to different vineyards in both areas so we could see for ourselves the differences in terrain, soil, and vines. We learned a lot about the wines from these areas in a very full and fun day. To top it all off, she also brought Chavignol goat cheeses of different ages for us to try at the third vineyard -- kind of a vertical tasting of Chavignol and very enlightening about the differences between differently aged goat cheese.

My wife and I visited Sancerre for a wine tour with Vinitour and had a great experience. Laure was a great guide and took us to several wineries to try a variety of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume wines. She explained everything in depth about the wines of the region and the terroirs. She poured a few more glasses per location than we are used to on wine tours so that was a plus and she even made an extra stop on our way home so we could try her personal favorites from the region. She does her best to tailor the tour to the group and makes sure you have a fantastic experience. Laure even went an extra step and made lunch and dinner reservations for us that same day at two fine establishments. We enjoyed the meals very much. The whole experience was one of our best wine tours of France!

We traveled down from Paris by train to spend the day with Laure Juvent, on a private 6 hour tour of the Loire Valley. Such a delight! Laure is so fun, warm, knowledgeable and well-connected throughout the valley, that we had access to many different wineries, got to meet numerous people in the local industry, have lunch at a wonderful restaurant right on the water, and even wander around the vineyards to learn about the different grapes, terroirs, etc. As others have said on here, it’s like taking a college level field trip with a delightful professor and lots of wine! Well worth the trip!

My friend and I had a fabulous tour with Laure this week. The Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé regions were fabulous and we also got to taste the beautiful goat’s cheese that is a speciality of the area. Laure was friendly, knowledgeable and fun and drove us around the region, including a fabulous restaurant for a lunch stop. Highly recommend this tour if you want to learn about the wines but also have fun doing it. Thank you!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to France. The tour explained the wine making process from start to finish, it was easy to follow and very enligtening. And even better, we tried lots of different wines! It's sparked my interest in wine-making and we plan to do more tours in different regions in the future .

We thoroughly recommend this 3-hour wine tour which also includes a visit and tasting at a goats cheese farm. Laure is very friendly and knowledgeable about the production techniques of both, explaining it all in great detail. She speaks excellent English. We really enjoyed our afternoon with her.

My wife and I loved the full day tour with Laure in September. She took us into the vineyards where we learned about the area and were able to taste the grapes right off of the vine. We also visited three different wineries and enjoyed a wide range of tastings. It was a great way to see, learn and enjoy Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. We highly recommend it if you are in the area!

We had SUCH a fabulous experience with Vinitour! We were a group of 8, family and friends (all couples), and we did a half day wine and goat cheese tasting tour around the Sancerre region with Laure a few days ago.

Laure picked us up and drove us all around in a minivan to make it easy so we could indulge in all the wine tasting properly! We first visited a goat farm where they make all kinds of fresh goat cheese and organic products; we tasted some wines and goat’s cheese’s, and then we went on to 2 more wineries for cave tours and tastings.
It was all spectacular and her knowledge of the area and the wines was amazing! It was a real experience, and we are now well kept in excellent wine and goat cheese that we brought home with us :) Huge thanks to Laure for such a wonderful day! :) x

Our guide Laure was so kind, informative, and personable. We were lucky enough to have a private tour and therefore we were able to see so many different things that could have been missed with a larger group. I am a history teacher and when I mentioned how much I love history and architecture it lit up the tour and Laure really tailored the tour to our (and her own) interests. She showed us the old Roman road, incredible vistas of the Loire River Valley, and an outstanding lunch spot in Pouilly-Fumé.
We were able to spend part of the afternoon with one of Laure’s friends Frédérique (another teacher) and we got along splendidly. We were able to talk openly about life in France versus life in the United States, teaching, and the local cultures. Laure is so knowledgeable about wine and we really felt like we made a friend. She also helped us order wine back to the U.S. and we will be keeping in touch for future orders.
Absolutely a must-do if you are in the region. Thank you for the wonderful day Laure!

If there is anything that you MUST do while in Sancerre - this is it! We spent a full day with Laure and had the most amazing time. No one else ended up booking the tour so we had a private day where we went to about 5 different vineyards and tasted the most amazing wines. Over the course of the day, my love for animals also came up in conversation so we stopped at a goat cheese farm and I can't even put into words how delicious it was. We learned so much throughout of the day and Laure did such an amazing job explaining the differences between all of the flavors in the wine and the history behind it all. It truly was such an amazing experience. The places you will go and see are unbelievable and Laure was SO knowledgeable about everything - we started the tour as newbies and left as experts. This is a MUST do on your trip to Sancerre!!!
