Vineyards, Wines & Champagnes
Our local sommelier, Thierry Berson has a wonderful shop –“ATOUT VINS” , 5 minutes away in Place Saint Pierre, Doué la fontaine. Well worth a visit!
Having spent 6 years in the UK working with Gordon Ramsay, Thierry and his wife, Sandrine moved back to his native Loire in 2001 to fulfil his passion and set up ATOUT VINS. We are fortunate to have this exceptional expertise within close proximity!
Benefit from Thierry’s passion and knowledge and arrange a wine tasting, either on site or at one of the local vineyards. Let Thierry know your preferences and he is only too happy to arrange a visit to a local wine producer, where you can sample sample his recommendations of local wine or his expert choices from further afield.
The region is famous for its “bubbles” and you will find some fabulous choices from a very modest budget to the more extravagant. The spectacular opening of the champagne with a sabre as part of a wine tasting event is not to be missed…!
If you’re celebrating a special occasion or would like to sample some interesting wines, let Thierry hand pick a selection for you to enjoy during your stay. Why not take one or two home to prolong your Loire Valley experience!
For further details, you can contact Thierry or Sandrine directly email@example.com prior to your stay or simply pop in to the shop once you arrive.
