The 2009 Vouvray is ready! Vincent Raimbault, Vouvray opens his doors this Easter with his annual Portes Ouvertes. Not only some lovely wines to taste, but also the troglodyte bread oven with be working again, cooking fouaces, brioches and bread with vine prunings and roots. You can watch (and taste) the delicious Rillons and Rillettes de Touraine being made in the traditional way. There’s fouaces with rillettes, goats cheese and garlic butter to try too.
Vincent Raimbault is a long term favourite of ours, both for classic and sparkling Vouvray at sensible prices. The 2008 Vouvray Sec and Demi-Sec gained a Silver Medal Au Concours des Vins du Val de Loire à Angers this February.
With wine tasting in the cave, there are exhibitions from three artists: Julien Hebras, furniture renovation, marquetry and wood turning, Carine Lepretre, painter and decorator from l’Atelier du Galet Rouge, and Yvette Kulwikowski, a local artist.
