Departure & Return
What To Expect
Learn the secrets of winemaking in the Loire Valley and the importance of ‘terroir’ as you stroll through the château vineyards and peek behind-the-scenes of the historic winery, which has been owned by the du Petit Thouars family since 1634. After seeing the aging cellars where the wines are aged in French oak casks, head to the tasting room to sample the winery’s fine Cabernet Franc and Chenin blanc wines.
After sampling the wines, you’ll have a chance to select a bottle of your favorite to accompany your lunch. You’ll then be left to enjoy your romantic picnic lunch, looking out over the château, the ancient dovecote, and the rolling vineyards.
