La gloire de la Loire :)

This time I chose the Loire, because I love this region and I think that as much as it is known for its « Chateaux » it is not enough appreciated for its wine and yet there are excellent wines there and many original wine makers… so let’s give it a try!!!

This wine tasting will take place at the wine shop « Le vin qui parle » (the wine that talks) and the young and passionate owner, Loic, will talk to you (in English) about the region demonstrating its richness through a selection of 5 wines.

The shop is not big, so the number of participants is rather restricted.

    Thanks a lot for those who arrive, I was very happy to meet you and hope that we will have many more tasty tastings as this one... (sorry for those who were confirmed at the last minute and could not attend)

    I have posted the photos of the wines that we tasted, with their names so you can look for those that you liked.

    If you use FB, you can follow the page of the wine shop ( )... this way you will be informed about saturdays' tasting in the shop - I think that Loic proposes one every 2nd week... there are always excellent discoveries there.

    And as we were a majority of women, you can note that for March 8, which is "Women's day"... there will be a tasting of wines made by women-wine makers!!!

    Hi, I would be delighted to join you but are we going to try some red wine because I don't drink red wine?

      I prefer red, so if tonight is white please let me know. I would rather attend a predominantly red wine event. Thanks!
