2016 Vignes, Vins, Randos – Val de Loire 3rd & 4th September

It is that time of year again – Vignes, Vins, Randos 2016 is on this coming weekend Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September. Full details here

Unfortunately I have never been in the Loire recently in time for Vignes, Vins, Randos, which is a pity as I have friends who speak highly of these events. Instead I tend to come to the Loire a week or so later for the harvest.  

This year's Randos from West to East:

Muscadet Côtes de Grandlieu
Muscadet Sèvre et Maine La Haye-Fouassière 
Coteaux d'Ancenis
Quarts de Chaume Grand Cru/Coteaux du Layon 1er Cru Chaume

Coteaux de l'Aubance 
Saumur Brut Fines Bulles
Saumur Champigny
Touraine Azay-le-Rideaux
