An extraordinary wine-focused day!!!! Special thanks to Gerald and Sarah-Jane for a really great day. Living near Napa and Sonoma, I have had lots of really great days which focused on enjoying wine and learning about wine. I think the day with Gerald and my colleague at the Domaine was my favorite of all these experiences. What made it great? 1. Effort-free: Picked up at the train station by Gerald, driven out to Le Puy de Notre Dame, then driven back to Saumur for an awesome lunch. 2. Lots of great wine: Reds, whites, sparklings….all were fantastic with distinct character and variety. 3. Wine caves: Amazing, preserved history in the limestone caves that went on forever under the Domaine. 4. Educational: I am a smarter wine drinker and Gerald changed the way I evaluate and appreciate wine. 5. Charcuterie: Memorable.
How good was it? If we had two days, we would have gone back to do the same thing the next day…And we will both go back for another day with Gerald on any return trip to France!
This is a special and authentic (not touristy!) experience. Don’t miss it!!!
