My wife and I were collected by Simon from Saumur from the Hotel Anne d'Anjou as recommended by Karin - great recommendation and a beautiful city.
Simon drove us and another couple to our first vineyard. Everything was passionately yet patiently explained in clear terms. No questions unanswered. We walked the whole process.
I learned so much. We were given pen and paper to make notes - I wish I had.
I do remember that the vines are not watered because that would dilute the juice ... that was my big ah ha!
Of course we sampled the wines and may have bought a case or two.
Then to lunch at the Manoir wonderfully prepared by Karin.
A short lecture later we were off to another vineyard. For more education and tasting.
You'll be glad to know that despite threats there was no test at the end.
A great experience. If you're not sure about it then just do it you will not be disappointed.
