Full description
Do you want to see splendid Renaissance castles and taste delicious Loire Valley wines? At the end of this private 11-hour wine and culture day tour, you will have fallen in love with Chambord's impressive architecture and with the diversity of Loire Valley wines. After an early morning hotel pick-up in Paris, you will travel with your knowledgeable guide about two hours south of the city towards Chambord Castle. En route, bite into flaky croissants and pastries while hearing about the history of the region and its heritage of wine-making. Arrive at Chambord Castle in the morning for an audio-guided tour. Come away knowing the secrets behind this magnificent Château, constructed by King Francis I of France 500 years ago. Back in your air-conditioned minivan, pass through the vineyards of Touraine, Vouvray and Montlouis sur Loire. Admire the colorful landscapes of chenin blanc, sauvignon blanc and cabernet franc grapes. Settle in at a family-run Vouvray wine estate, where you’ll meet the winemaker and enjoy a delicious meal of traditional food, paired with a wine tasting. After lunch, discover a boutique but world-famous winery and taste sparkling white wines, dry and sweet white wines, red and rosé wines (depending on availability). Taste authentic Loire Valley wines largely unavailable in the rest of the world. You will be dropped off back at your hotel in the evening.
