A lovely display of roses under our studio balcony. The fragrance is amazing and all the guests get a whiff as they pass. Have a seat and for an aperitif try our Rosette AOC a lovely delicate sweet white. Just the ticket sitting under the canopy of the fragrant roses.

A little talk by Simon before embarking on a wine tour in Saumur country in the Loire valley, France. Here are Andrea, Ian, Margaret and Tony enjoying the outdoors in an organic vineyard. This part of the estate is a parcel of Chenin Blanc the white grape of the area. It makes fresh and vibrant wines and also some of the best sweet wines in the world. Our guests experienced the wine room and caves before tasting the estate wines. Saumur red and white, Puy Note Dame classic and oaked the local village appellaton, Cabernet d’Anjou a demi sec pink, a Saumur Brut made in the ancestral way and a sparkling red. Lovely.

An evening of jollity and fun at the Walsh household in  Passavant somewhere in the deepest Loire valley. Here is a man demonstrating the new way of transportation. You hover above the floor and move by operating your hands in a particular way to gain movement forward, backwards and right to left. Personal Hovering has become a new phenomenon lately. Contact J Walsh at jwalshpersonalhovering@passavant.fr for a personal lesson in Personal Hovering. Wine of choice when hovering must be an Anjou Village from Chateau de Brossay. A great pairing.

Dinner guests at Manoir de Gourin

Grainger’s wine blog is gfwineblog.co.uk

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

An enjoyable evening with guests Patricia, Paul, Tony, Margaret, Ian and Andrea in the dining room at Manoir de Gourin in the Loire, France. The starter a  velouté of purple sprouting broccoli from our garden with goats cheese and lardons, main of pork fillet, local saute mushrooms and apples, with our garden spinach, Cheese and Karin’s blackcurrant tart from our harvest last year. Pairing the wine needed some thought but with the flavours of the starter needing a wine with a little structure and the pork needing a wine also with structure and not too strong in body guests plumped for a local Rose de Loire pink and a light and fruity cabernet franc red from Saumur.

A new season Beetroot from the potager of Manoir de Gourin

Grainger’s wine blog is gfwineblog.co.uk

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

Spring has sprung and we continue to reap the harvest in our potager here at Manoir de Gourin in the Loire valley, France. Some, who shall be nameless, boast about their long cucumbers, their red round toms, etc but at Manoir we can show the real thing. A wonder to behold. Anyone for bowls and a light refreshment on the terrace with a beetroot salad? And a wine to go with it? Try a red Albarino from Northern Spain.
