More on the Domaine Poiron-Dabin !!!

I have some personal pictures that left out of previous posts but now decided to put them in my blog, just for the memories ‘s sake, The town is call Château Thebaud and are in the Loire Atlantique dept 44 now part of the Pays de la Loire region but historically part of Bretagne/Brittany (Breizh in Breton language). It is sort of like the Breton wine area ! And we go often and do get our house wines from there. As said, I have written a couple of posts on these outings , hope the new older personal pictures you enjoy reading as I.

One of our fav properties in town is the Domaine Poiron-Dabin. They are only 15 km from Nantes , and about 165 km from our house, The town located on the banks of the Maine river, Château Thebaud lends itself to nautical activities, its banks for climbing and hiking as well, They are at the place or Lieu dit Chantegrolle, Château-Thébaud right off the road D58 coming from Vertou and further Nantes. We come here for tasting and field tasting between the vineyards ! They have a game or at least we were in it, where you go into the vineyards to find hidden bottles and taste them on the spot ! Great !!

Things to do with the Domaine Poiron-Dabin : On a beautiful day, departing from the St-Félix basin in Nantes or the Chaussée des Moines de Vertou, a peaceful gourmet stroll awaits you. With La Toue De Nantes, make yourself comfortable and the Libellule casts off the moorings. A bucolic navigation aboard Libellule, a replica of a traditional toue cabanée, a wandering on the Sèvre then the Maine rivers. The magnificent landscapes, the beautiful residences and the castles will amaze your eyes. A privileged meeting with a passionate winegrower who will make you taste a selection of 10 cuvées carefully chosen one by one to sublimate each bite of your meal prepared by the Auberge de la Gaillotière. Stroll around, glass in hand, looking for our bottles scattered at the foot of the vines corresponding to their grape varieties.  You can stroll in the vineyards and halfway through, a picnic awaits you, before setting off again to explore the grape varieties. At the end of the journey, a meeting with a member of our team is offered to you in the cellar. And they can set up for you La Divatte, walk on the banks of the Loire, commented boat trip. Nantes its historical and cultural heart, All marvelous !
