Domaine de Rocheville, Parnay, Loire Valley

Detailed description

Discover our terroir, its geological and gourmet features through a fine meal in a troglodytic and historical cellar, then a visit to our cellars and a commented tasting of 4 wines.

This tour will start with a delicious lunch in the unique and historic setting of our partner, the restaurant L'Hélianthe near Parnay. In the historic home of Antoine Cristal, one of the "fathers" of the PDO Saumur Champigny, you will discover one of the region's treasures, troglodytism, and an inventive cuisine based on traditional ingredients: Chef Arnaud Montais will suggest you to choose from his seasonal menu a starter, main course and dessert, which we will accompany with 3 glasses of wines from our production (a Crémant de Loire as an aperitif, then a Saumur Blanc and a Saumur Champigny).
After lunch, passing in front of the art village, also troglodytic, of Turquant, you will meet us at the Domaine. We will then welcome you for a detailed visit of our facilities and explanations on the secrets of our wine making. You will end this visit with a tasting of 4 of our vintages on the panoramic terrace if the weather permits or around the fireplace in winter.

Accueil extrêmement sympathique, très grande disponibilité pour répondre aux questions. La vinification est racontée avec passion et clarté. Quant au repas proposé, il est délicieux !
