This was a truly memorable day and our hosts Cathy and Nigel are truly delightful. Both have extensive knowledge of French wine and Nigel having studied Farming is able to talk easily about the nurturing needed for growing the grapes through the year until the harvest. We had a wonderful lunch with good company and of course the wine flowed.... More

Navigating the chateaus in the Loire Valley can be an arduous task. Booking with Cathy and Nigel was such a treat. They bring the wines to you in their beautiful home. The wines, information and fun banter kept the day feeling fresh and new. Nigel is quite the chef and the lunch in their cellar room was superb. The day... More

We wanted to get out of Paris for a day and enjoy the wines of the Loire Valley. Cathy and Nigel were amazing and made it a special relaxing day. Both were very knowledge and helped us understand the process and regulations about wine making in France. There was definitely plenty of wine supplied and enjoyed during the day. The... More

Cathy and Nigel wear their knowledge lightly and it's only when you start to ask questions that you realise how deep their wine knowledge, particularly of the Loire, is. We were pleasantly surprised how much Nigel knew in respect of vineyard management. Food was excellent and wine flowed freely. Strongly recommended.

We scooped up another couple and headed to their home where they have a beautiful tasting room set up for both wine tastings... More

My wife and I had a great day with Cathy and Nigel and another couple, visiting 3 different vineyards with different price ranges of wine offering. Delighted to meet the winemakers and taste many unique wines of the Loire valley. The tour included a lovely lunch in a small historic village with wine of course. And managed to snap up... More

We had a great tour of the wine estates/chateaus with Cathy and Nigel. The group of 6 of us now have a greater appreciation of the Chenin Blanc and Cab Franc wines as well as the sparkling and sweet wines from this area. Cathy and Nigel have been living in the Loire area for 10+ years and are very knowledgable... More

Along with our adult daughter, my wife and I started our week long visit to the Loire Valley with a visit to Le Tasting Room to learn of this very big and important wine growing region of France. Cathy and Nigel exceeded our expectations and this was definitely the highlight of our time in the Loire. Located just outside of... More

When you book a tour online thousands of miles away, you put a bit of faith into the decision. Needless to say, I have no doubt my two girlfriends and me made the right decision to book the Discovery tour with Cathy and Nigel! Incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable, and accommodating, I would book the tour again in a second and wish... More
