A most enjoyable experience with a knowledgeable and friendly guide.

The tour was very well organised and a most interesting experience. We were picked up on time from the Loire Tourist Office in Tour, and taken on a picturesque drive to our first stop at the Alain Robert vineyards. We were met there by the wife of the owner who gave us an interesting insight into the growing and harvesting cycle. We then went up to the higher vineyards and sampled Vouvray wines in the beautiful countryside; wonderful! Next we went on to see the bottling process. Finally we visited the labyrinthine limestone cellars of the Bredif winery; an amazing experience! Our guide from the winery gave us a well informed and entertaining tour, which culminated in a wine tasting accompanied by tasty snacks. The 4 hour tour exceeded expectations and made us feel that we would like to spend more time exploring this region and it's wonderful countryside and viniculture.

An excellent opportunity to learn about wine appellation of the Vouvray region, and try some lovely chenin blancs of different maturities and styles, a true testament to the winemakers of each of the 2 vineyards and wineries we visited. Marion was a wonderful guide, both informative and fun!

Our guide was amazing and welcoming, had a broad knowledge about wine. We tasted 11 different delicious wines and saw two very nice wineries. Definitely recommend!
