Evenings in the Touraine vineyards
What better way to discover Loire Valley wines than by exploring local vineyards, and why not do so in the evening? This is what "Soirées dans les vignes de Touraine" ("Evenings in the vines of the Touraine") offers from mid-July to mid-August: a month punctuated by nightly encounters with a local winemaker. Surrounded by his vines he will talk to you about his vineyard, work and cellar, not to mention his Loire Valley wines which you can enjoy in his company alongside local gastronomic specialities. The Soirées events offer a convivial immersion into Loire countryside, which reveals a completely different side in the evening. Every summer a dozen vine growers, two cooperatives and two traders of the Touraine appellation take part in the event.
