Customised Loire Wine Tours in  Loire Vineyards

“Thank you for welcoming us to your world for the last six days. I came to La Grande Maison with my three sons to celebrate my 70th Birthday and to introduce them to the delights of the Loire Valley and it’s wines. You organised and delivered a vin marathon of 13 tastings in five days. An excellent holiday”

La Grande Maison is your starting point for a customised wine tour. Nestled on a hill in the heart of the vines of the Saumur - Puy Notre Dame Appellation is the perfect location for starting a bespoke wine tour of the Loire Valley wine region. We'll guide you through the vineyard tracks and explain about viticulture, grape growing, grape varieties and terroir along the way.


We can customise a wine tour to you own specific requirements be it for a special event, birthday, anniversary, honeymoon or just a special get away holiday with a group of friends.


Some of the bespoke wine tours that we have created over the years include :


  • Walking Wine Tours in the Loire Vineyards

  • Wine Tours by Caleche - Traditional Horse & Cart

  • Wine Tours by Bike - either cycling through the vineyards or in the wine caves

  • 4x4 Landrover Defender Off Road Wine Tour

  • Wine and Boat Tour - sailing the majestic Loire River

  • Family Wine Tours for Special Birthdays - with family birthday dinner

  • Group Wine Tours for Special Occasions - with group celebration dinners


We can cater for groups up to 10 in a selection of 4 luxury bedrooms at La Grande Maison and offer dining occasions that will stay in your memory for many years to come.
