Wine Tours

Loire Valley Wine Tour was started by Marie-Chantal and Colin Elliott in response to requests from travel agents, wine enthusiasts and visitors for guided tours to the vineyards of the region in which they now live. Many of our clients are American, but others come from the four corners of the world to taste and buy Loire Valley wines.

Keen wine enthusiasts, they trained with the professional body, the Wine and Spirits Educational Trust, taking their knowledge to another level. As educators, they love to pass on what they have learned to others and as proud residents of the region, are pleased to introduce guests to the delights of their adopted home.

Colin and Marie-Chantal moved from the UK to their home in the Loire Valley in 2004 but have been visiting the region for decades. Their house is graced by a 16thC wine cellar which is slowly filling up with fine wines from around France. This work is never finished!

Cultural tours

The Loire Valley is one of the major wine production regions of France, but it is so much more than that. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 2000, the Loire Valley is also noteworthy for the quality of its architectural heritage. Historic towns such as Amboise, Blois, Chinon and Tours, and in particular its world-famous chateaux (castles), such as the Châteaux of Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau, Chambord and Chenonceau.

To quote UNESCO, the Loire Valley is: "an exceptional cultural landscape, of great beauty, comprised of historic cities and villages, great architectural monuments - the Châteaux - and lands that have been cultivated and shaped by centuries of interaction between local populations and their physical environment, in particular the Loire itself."

We are proud to live and work in this delightful region and it is with great pleasure that we show visitors from around the world what we have discovered since we have been here.

"A wine lovers dream"

The Loire Valley produces wine in a wide range of colours and styles. Our tours give you a unique opportunity to taste these wines, look at the production facilities and often meet the owners. As enthusiasts ourselves, we make a point of seeking out the best.
