LOIRE VALLEY VISIT WITH MAI & KENJI HODGSON

LOIRE VALLEY VISIT WITH MAI & KENJI HODGSON

Because we love natural wines and the men and women who make them, we paid a visit this week to Mai & Kenji Hodgson. A very cosmopolitan visit, with the entire Japanese Raisin team. From left to right: Akiko, Paul, Natsuki, Tomomi, Jane, Mai, Jean-Hugues and Kenji.

We tasted superb Chenin wines, Cabernet Franc, but also that gourmet regional vine, Grolleau. We invite you to do the same and to discover these charming people and their excellent wines. It is exciting to discover people passionate about their work and who believe in what they do. THANK YOU to Mai & Kenji!

ESTABLISHMENT RECOMMENDED BY RAISIN

During our trip to Angers, we also visited 2 establishments:

Au Goût du Jour
Au Goût du Jour

“The restaurant ‘Au Goût du Jour’ practices fresh market cuisine with skill and finesse; Ange, a wine from Touraine made by Gérard Marula, perfectly accompanied the tuna with carrots and peanuts. Flawless. The prices are as agreable on the wine menu as on the other menus. A place to visit as soon as possible, for those who might not know the establishment.

Au Goût du Jour : 14, Rue de la Roë, 49100 Angers + 33 2 41 23 73 19

cave-saint-aubin

The Cave Saint Aubin offers an exacting and highly selective choice of the best in natural wine. Naturally, a wide range of Chenin and Anjou wines are offered, but that is not all. There are also plenty of wines from winemaker Eric Pfifferling of the Domaine L’Anglore, from the Grange Aux Belles, from Mosse, and a multitude of other gems that we invite you to discover.
