In the heart of bonnezeaux appellation, discover this precious wine. Honey-dew, fragrance of wild flowers: a liquid gold shivers in this dream vial.

A château, a cellar-windmill and a game of ‘boule de fort’ are just some of the highlights of this  Vignes Vins Randos walk as it wends its way through the hillsides of the small, schist-rich Bonnezeaux terroir, home to a sweet, golden wine.

Stops on this walk: 


1.       Learn about the terroir: an introduction to the area’s geological make-up and how it shapes the appellation wines.

2.       Stop at the heart of the vineyards to sample a range of bonnezeaux wines served with homemade bites and to admire the views of Thouarcé.

3.       A further stop to taste a vintage bonnezeaux wine in the shade of a sequoia tree, paired this time with local specialities. Enjoy a demonstration of ‘Boule de Fort’ –the local sport of choice.

Back at the VVR village, carry on enjoying the festive atmosphere in the company of winemakers and other participants.


Warning ! The course is difficult to reach for strollers for the 1st stop.
