Continue on to a family-run wine estate and sample some of the Bourgueil wines in production. Then the lunch is at your leisure.

We had a wonderful time during this...

We had a wonderful time during this tour. The chateaus were beautiful. They were very well kept. The Chateau Langeais was some what different because of having some features of a castle. Gardens of Villandry were magnificent. The lunch at Chateau de Miniere was really simple but nice. Both vines we tasted were fine. Our guide was Manon. She was great. We learned from her a lot. Thank you for the great time.
