Overview
We're expats, formerly of Devon in the United Kingdom but now of Chinon. I've always cycled and loved my bike, and for the best part of my adult life, always loved wine... this is me! With my family, I now find ourselves living amongst vineyards, with wine producers creating something very special on our doorstep. Chinon wine is recognised as being very special across France, yet throughout the rest of the world it's lesser known and we're keen to spread the word about the local wine through vineyard tours! We spent years and years holidaying in France before moving here, never quite summoning up the courage to head in through the big barn doors of a wine producer, but now we've started we can't stop! This type of visit is so important to many independent producers, and we're now keen to share this experience with you. First and foremost our vineyard tours by bike are designed to be a fun experience, for you, family and friends to make the most of your time in the Chinon area.

After squeezing my wife and I in for an afternoon vineyard tour in 2019 (which was superb!) I decided to book onto the full tour this year. This time I took along my father in law. Booking was easy and Quintin made sure my father in law had a bike upgrade to electric!! Not

We arranged this tour with Quinton ‘on spec’ from Australia during our stay in the Loire Valley. It was a delight! The town of Chinon was one of the most beautiful we have seen so far in the Loire and learnt from our host that it is a very significant historical town in France

Quintin clearly knew the area well and after visiting three different producers and cycling across the countryside, we felt like we'd gotten a good feel for the AOC of Chinon. A lovely introduction to where we were visiting for the rest of the week, highly recommend.

I'm so pleased you feel you got a good insight into the AOC to start your visit to the region, and that we managed to find you some really great wines, at a far more sensible price than you can source in the States!!
