Our Sancerre event takes place at the end of August where we stay at Le Panoramic hotel, renowned for its spectacular views and outdoor swimming pool overlooking the vineyards. We dine in a Michelin-starred restaurant and learn about the history of winemaking in Sancerre from our winemakers Pierre and Bertrand Riffault. This relaxing, fun and thoroughly entertaining weekend is one of our most popular! It can be a revelation to those unfamiliar with the white, red and rose wines of this gorgeous region.
The weekend starts with a brief meeting in the hotel lounge at 4pm before strolling down to the foire, where we spend a few pleasurable hours, soaking up the atmosphere and sampling the wines (if desired).
In the evening we walk into the heart of Sancerre to the delightful La Tour restaurant. The food in this Michelin-starred restaurant is a perfect match for the stunning vineyard views from our upstairs dining room.
Pierre or Bertrand Riffault, our Sancerre winemakers, will meet us at la Maison des Sancerre. We will enjoy a tour of Pierre’s vineyard and cellar before being treated to a tasting of his superb Sancerre wines (white, rosé and red) and a sumptuous ‘gourmet’ picnic lunch in his garden.
As the lengthy lunch is quite substantial, we don’t arrange a group meal for the evening. There are plenty of options available, including a restaurant next door to the hotel. We can also make suggestions to suit your individual needs if you wish.
INCLUDES: 2 nights’ accommodation at Le Panoramic; dinner (with wine) on Saturday night, lunch on Sunday (with wine) and all wine tastings and activities. Coach transport on Sunday. £315 per person (members only), £349 per person (non-members). To reserve your place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form below:
