By its nature, the Saumur fines bulles wine is for the adepts of the elegant pleasure. With several grapes varieties, this appellation offers richness, harmony and flavor for almost two centuries.

From the medieval town of Montreuil-Bellay, located on the Thouet River, Vignes Vins Randos brings you to discover the historical heritage and the sparkling wines of Anjou and Saumur.


You begin your walk in the vineyards with a superb view of the collegiate church of Montreuil-Bellay. Then you leave the vineyard to reach the city towards the port Sainte Catherine, former port of merchandise. The arcades of the priory are not very far and it is in this historic place that you enjoy your first wine accompanied by homemade bites.

The walk continues along the rampart, on the banks of the Thouet then in town where you attend a demonstration of the traditional game of Anjou: the ball of Fort, the only game in the world to compete in slippers.

 Before your second tasting, you walk along the ramparts and discover the Saint Jean Hospital dating from the 15th century. Your second stop is at the Mail garden kiosk, a bandstand dating from the 19th century. You can taste wines from the appellation according to local dishes at the rhythm of a band.

 After this beautiful walk in the city of Montreuil-Bellay, you return to the vineyards to enjoy the landscape during a third tasting break that will be served with homemade bites.

At the end of your walk, all the winemakers welcome you to the VVR village and you can enjoy thanks to the foodtrucks. The wines tasted during the hike will be available for sale and children will enjoy the wooden games.

Picnics are allowed.

Vineyard School: Before leaving or returning from your walk, participate in a tasting class with a professional sommelier. On the 
VVR village, after an hour of workshop, the wines of the Loire Valley will have no secrets for you! Accessibility to the workshop is strictly reserved for participants of Vines Randos Wine. Book your seats when registering for your hike (15 € per adult).
