Savennières Dimanche 17 Mai 2009 Fete du Gout et du Patrimoine

If you would like to visit Savennières yourself why not take the opportunity to join the festivities on 17th May. Various activities are taking place during the day including une randonnée pédestre (vin et terroir). Sentiers d'un jour sur les coteaux et domaines privés de Savennières pour vous permettre de découvrir des points de vue exceptionnels sur la Loire - this walk around the hillsides starts between 08h30 and 11h30 and there are three options 6, 12 and 14km. Cost is 3€ and includes a glass of wine vin d'honneur (free for children less than 12 years old).

Lunch can be taken in the parc du Fresne (sale of tickets by the ramble departure point) for 9€ to include crudité starter, hot main course, cheese and tarte or you can buy a sandwich. Alternatively, if you fancy something a bit more formal, Domaine du Closel is offering a special lunch 'Saveurs de Printemps' - asparagus, sandre de Loire et fraises d'Anjou for 30€ a head (12€ for children less than 12) - reservations are required for this so call 02 41 72 81 00 to book a table.

There will be music in the wineries during the morning and during the afternoon, activities for children, facepainting, games, wine tasting, music, art and photography exhibitions.

If the weather is fair Savennières is expecting several thousand - there should be a great atmosphere.
