Super day out today  taking our guests from Calgary, Canada on a wine adventure into the vineyards of the Loire valley. We tasted some 20 wines from many different appellations and learnt about the wines from two passionate winemakers personally presenting their wines for tasting. A traditional lunch made by the winemaker’s wife tasting the wines of the estate through each course of the lunch. A real magical experience and one not to be missed. Lovely.

Loading up 324 bottles of 2011 Saumur.

The Loire valley has such diverse weather. It determines the quality of wines produced each year. The vintages can be so different. 2011 was a year that made exceptional wines here in the Saumur appellation for some of the best winemakers. It was so good in 2011 that I purchased 54 cases of the lovely stuff which will allow me to miss those bad years and continue to drink the 2011. What joy.

2 EU employees here. Look at those figures! No wonder the establishment want to stay in the corrupt EU. Don’t be naive thinking these people are looking after our best interests. They are lining their own pockets first.

We know why we have decided to tell the EU to go fxxx itself? Lets all get on the gravy train folks and screw  us the taxpayer. Money money money. Look at what the Kinnock’s rake in. Scandalous. Why are the lefties so hypercritical. Because they too work for the state. Simple. Screw us the people who pay their wages. That’s why the teachers et al are so left. Its not their money. ITS OUR TAX.

After such a lot of rain and bad weather it was a joy to take our guests on a wine tour in sunny warm weather today. Our host Brigitte provided a perfect chance to try the wines of the Loire valley here in France. Some local Chenin Blanc the classic appellation white cepage of this part of the Loire. A fruity light red from the classic Saumur appellation made from the cabernet Franc grape variety again a local grape that is used throughout the area for red and rosé wines. We dipped into sparkly, pinks and the  local village appellation of Puy Notre Dame. A great day out.

A great day out with our guests from Pom and Down Under. A trip into Saumur to sample the many delights of the local bubbly from the Saumur and Cremant de Loire Appellations. Gosh a wonderful experience. Added to that we even ventured to taste the Eau de Vie and other such loveliness at Combier, including the french tour with some english translation mixed in. Just ask me about Wormwood. They didn’t.  I know. It is used to make Absinthe at Combier. Clever boy that Grainger.

Being given directions can be difficult particularly if the person giving the directions only happens to have a plate and leftovers to show the way. It could have been made difficult if the person who’s plate was used had cleaned his plate but fortunately there were some scraps leftover. So the bacon rind became the Rue de Docteur Lionet, The slither of Goats cheese the local supermarket, the crust of bread the roundabout, the rind the Rue de Cholet, and the slice of bread the destination. I hope this gets the participant of the directions to his intended destination without slipping up!

The assembled guests for the pink lunch at Domaine de L’Enchantoir, Loire, France

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

It was unfortunate that the weather was somewhat unpredictable on Sunday ( like the EU referendum result ) so Pierre and Brigitte Van Den Boom at Domaine de L’Enchantoir decided to hold their Pink day in the reception room. Normally it is in the back garden or the vineyard and we have a BBQ but they decided that it was better to play safe and we all made merry inside instead. Never mind at least we managed a game of Boule in the courtyard after some lovely food and homemade entertainment (ie much singing).
