VitiLoire @Tours: 26th and 27th May 2018
Vitiloire centres around the Boulevard Heurteloup
and close to Tours central station
This coming weekend sees VitiLoire in central Tours. This is the Loire’s biggest consumer Wine Fair with some 150 producers from throughout the Loire. It attracts thousands especially on a fine day and this year the forecast is good. Highs of 28˚C are predicted for both Saturday and Sunday in Tours before an early Monday morning thunderstorm
There are 135 vignerons showing their wines from appellations from the Pays Nantais all the way up the river to the Côtes d’Auvergne. There is the opportunity to buy with ‘grooms’ available to carry your purchases to your car as well as numerous food stalls when you get hungry. There is also the possibility of arranging to have your wine delivered to your home. Not forgetting 12 chefs demonstrating their art – six on Saturday and six on Sunday.
It is always a fun and convivial event and a great chance to taste a very wide range of Loire wines. I prefer to get there early and then slope off around lunchtime but that is because I’m a boring old fart……
