Wine tour of the cellar and Restaurants

Good plans and good addresses

A savory stay in the middle of the Touraine vineyards

Are you fond of good wines, lover of terroirs or simply gourmets?
Do you want to discover or rediscover the wine appellations of the Loire Valley in Touraine without spending a week going through everything on the Internet?
You are in a group and want to put oenology at the heart of your stay (holidays, seminars, etc.).

Winemakers from father to son at the Moyers, we know the best addresses and help you to simplify your research.

Wine tasting in the shade of the Grand Cedar

Leave a few bunches of grapes at the edge of your vineyard for the thirsty traveler. Greek proverb (the ancient maxims, 1855).

We have always applied this maxim, every day, to guarantee the best welcome to our guests. Whether it is for our Bed and Breakfast at Aurore de Beaufort, or today at the Gîte Clair Matin, our mission remains the same: to give you the best conditions to enjoy this beautiful touristic and wine region. You can taste the wines of Touraine, crément or rosé, accompanied by explanations and anecdotes that Jean-Marie Moyer can share with you.

Discover the wine appellations

The wine appellations (“appellations d’origine contrôlée”) are numerous in Touraine: Montlouis, Vouvray, Chinon, Bourgueil, Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil, Touraine Amboise, Touraine Azay-le-Rideau…, and make it the 3rd wine region in France.

Within white wines, Chenin Blanc is the emblematic grape of the Loire Valley, where it expresses the power of the terroirs and the finesse of the microclimates of the Loire Valley region.

You can taste the different wines, including the great sweet wines of the Loire Valley, and grape varieties near the farmhouse, or make a loop to go as close as possible to each vineyard in the region. It’s up to you!
