A wonderful opportunity for good accomodation, wonderful varied countryside and of course, fabulous wine at Domaine del La Paleine. Do try the wine tasting at the vineyard. An amazing selection for a vinyeard of its size.

“Learn, taste and enjoy!”
Reviewed June 1, 2010

Wine tasting with Gerald is a lesson in how to apprecite good wines and a demonstration of how passionate he is about all aspects of wine making in the region. I have visited 3 years running and each time discover more about the region, the good years and the not so good years (equally important) and how previous years are developing with age. I can thoroughly recommend this true French experience and wonderful exhuberance of your host. Embrace the culture, the region and the wine and you will definitely get the most from your 'degustation'!

“As French as it gets!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2010

A fabulous experience and at last the 'true' sort of wine tasting tour I have long been looking for. Géralds enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for wine is incredible, helped by his terrific English, I learnt SO much and feel I actually understand wine. The Domaine is stunning and after visiting the vines, caves and chai the wine tasting followed in the gorgeous Salle de Dégustation. Just fantastic, the wines are sublime and I couldn't recommend a wine tour with Gérald more highly to any wine enthusiast staying close to Saumur.
