Vineyard/winery tours and tastings near Giverny?

Hi,

I will be staying near Giverny in a few weeks time and wanted to know if there are any vineyards/wineries near by that offer tours/tasting? It would be great to see where some of the local wine is produced and to be able to taste!

Thanks

Sarah

Sorry to disappoint you, but the nearest wineries are in the Loire valley about 3 or 4 hours drive south.

Or in the Champagne region. Easy to reach from Paris - but on a different day-trip than Giverny.

disappointing, but by asking the question, you've been saved from visiting a restaurant and asking for a 'carafe of the local red'

No shame. You can make some glorious calvados and cider tasting, with pommeau and poiré as well. France isn't only about wine !

Calvados may also be in Normandy but it is a long way from Giverny.

There are three vinyards in Normandy now, due to global warming. They are not near Giverny.

Hi cpmac

we have a number in the UK, some quite northerly and they consistently win international prizes for their whites ( it is not sunny/warm enough in UK for reds) - I assume the Normandy vinyards are also producing white wine?

Yes white wine.

I've tried one; It was very good.
