Enjoy an experience in the Loire Valley

 Guest Book - Nantes Wine Tour

Great half day

I highly recommend spending some time with Franck if you are in Muscadet country. We only had an afternoon, but Franck did a great job helping us learn more about Muscadet production around Nantes, and most importantly, helping us experience some great wine. He is a pleasure to hang out with, and he really knows the good producers. Highly recommended.

Wonderful experience!

The tour was lovely - we visited fields of grapevines, a historic windmill and winery. The tour guides were extremely knowledgable and friendly and the wine was marvelous. Our entire group enjoyed the experience very much and would definitely recommend it to others!

We just spent a great day touring the Coteaux de Layon and the Saumur region, in the very pleasant company of Frank (Pasquier). We enjoyed our visit to a wonderful little winery, had a great lunch and were surprised and delighted by the tour of the caves and tunnels under the property of sparkling wine makers in Saumur. Frank was very informative and relaxed, making our comfortable drive through the gorgeous lush countryside of the Loire valley a real delIght.
We will definitely call him if we get the chance to come back and explore another área In thé region.

The problem with Bordeaux wine tours is that everyone does them. So there is a time limit and a commercial edge to buy the wine. Not so with ALO. Relaxed, knowledgeable, attentive, personalised and a great day out. Frank picked us up in Nantes and drove us straight to the vineyard where he explained the unique differences about Muscadet wine and the region. We drank a glass in the middle of the vineyards before setting off to see the wine making process. The owner of the vineyard we stopped at took as much time as we wanted to show us the process from beginning to end and then offered us a generous helping of all his wines, explaining the differences between all of them. We bought a couple of crates of his fantastic wine, which we are sadly just finishing now. Frank then dropped us back in Nantes. A great day and highly recommended.
