Tasting Loire@Liberty Wines

A busy day tasting today: first at the Oval Cricket Ground with the Liberty Wines event and then across London to another famous cricket ground, Lords, and the French Association of Independent Wine Growers (Vigneron Independant). On both occasions there was a wide range of wines to taste but I focused purely on the Loire.

I will be posting on these tastings in the next few days but first some photos of Loire producers from the Liberty event.
