At the end of June, Angers will be on fire celebrating with 2 fantastic wine events - La Paulée de l'Anjou & the Chenin Blanc International Congress. To support these great initiatives, Pascaline and Chef Diego Moya put together a very special wine dinner full of treasures from the region.
A celebration of the terroirs of Anjou, the dark Schist on the Anjou Noir side, the white Tuffeau on the Anjou Blanc side, La Paulée will gather more than 50 producers, iconic or young guns, all dedicated to organic or biodynamic farming, to showcase their world-class wines. The tasting will happen in the superb vineyard of La Coulée de Serrant in Savennières on Sunday afternoon, June 30th.
On July 1st, 2nd and 3rd the first Chenin Blanc International Congress will take place also in Angers. Gathering Chenin experts and specialists from all around the globe, the congress will offer different masterclasses and vineyard tours to understand the multiple expressions of this unique grape variety.
