Les Volets Rouges, you will find, is in the heart of the Loire wine region. Visits can be organised for tastings at some world-famous vinyards. There are, for example, the magnificent reds of  St Nicolas de Bourgueil and the Bourgueil wines produced by Jérôme Godefroy in Chouzé, or the refreshing sparkling white and rosé wines produced by Gratien Meyer.  There are also the Champigny wines from beside Saumur itself. From many years of experience and from perhaps drinking a little too much, we can recommend many fine wine makers within a fifty mile radius of the gîtes.
