The annual event « Vignes, Vins et Randos » (Vineyards, Wines and Hikes) invites you to discover the vineyards of the Loire valley through sixteen hikes led by winegrowers and some of them offer commentaries in English. They share with you their know-how and their passion for their work and their land, and guide you through landscapes listed by Unesco as part of Mankind's world heritage. Short snack breaks are organized along the way as well as musical, artistic and educational activities. When the walk is over, you can have a picnic with the winegrowers and enjoy the region’s best wines.
