A typical Chinon vineyard, in early spring.
Typically, the people working at Loire Valley wineries are family members, with perhaps one or two salaried staff. Everyone mucks in together and can turn their hand to everything, from pruning to picking to packing. Although the wineries are small and everyone is busy, because we have established a relationship with the winemakers, it is rare that they tell us we cannot bring a client to visit them, so with us, you can visit the Loire wineries any time you like.
If you would like the best possible experience at a small but high quality wine producer, email us and let us organise a session with a winemaker for you.
