Full description
Head to the quaint village of Chançay, at the heart of AOC Vouvray to meet your guide, the wife of the winemaker at the family-owned winery you'll be touring. Hear about the history of a winery owned by your guide's parents-in-laws since 1973 and immerse yourself in life at the winery for a few hours.  Take a guided walk in the vineyard surrounding the winery to learn about the French AOC system and its strict rules, as well as the art of vine-growing throughout the year. Understand the specificities of the terroirs in Vouvray and enjoy the view over the vineyards, the winemaker's houses, and the rock-hewn cellars that are typical of the area. Follow the path taken by the grapes at harvest time from the vineyard to the winery where they're pressed to make wine. Learn about different wine-making techniques and visit the wine cellar dug in the rock by your guide's family. Discover the traditional method used in the area to make the famous sparkling wines of Vouvray. Then taste a range of 6 wines produced at the winery from sparkling white and rosé to dry and sweet white wines. Enjoy local delicacies served with the wines, including Loire fish rillettes, charcuteries, cheeses, and local desserts. At the end of the tour, take advantage of the chance to buy wine at cellar-door prices.
