In the morning visit a wine estate located in the vicinity of Angers, “Anjou Noir” followed by a tasting a selection of wines from the estate. Lunch will be a relaxed traditional picnic, with of course wines to accompany. The afternoon will be devoted to the “Anjou Blanc” vineyards. Visit a wine estate located in the vicinity of Bourgueil, Chinon and Saumur, near the western border of the Touraine appellation – “tuffeau” limestone underground. Following the tour enjoy a final wine tasting before your guide returning you to your Chateau accommodation.
