Day Trip from Paris via Train-Would like to incorporate wine tasting

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Paris for a long weekend in early March and want to get out of the city for one day trip. Before you chastise me for leaving the city, I've been to Paris several times and while I know I haven't seen the whole city, my friend and I would really like to see another town/city in France for the day. And rather than just wandering aimlessly around a new town I like to have one target site/objective/goal for the day, and I think wine tasting is a perfectly acceptable goal for a day of vacation! I'm not particularly interested in champagne tasting, more red wines.

I found this information on the Maisons des Vins in several of the Loire towns: http://www.vinsvaldeloire.fr/en_EN/vins_trouver/maisons_vins.aspx

Has anyone been to these Maisons? Would anyone recommend one of these towns in particular? I'm picturing getting into town and wandering a bit, having lunch, doing some wine tasting, wandering/shopping, and having dinner before catching a train back to Paris.

Would love to visit actual vineyards, but no car and trying to keep it simple. Are there any other such wine tasting opportunities in other towns such as Dijon or Lyon or ??? (that would be within a couple of hours of Paris by train)? I believe Beaune has something similar to the above with the Marche aux Vins but I think that's a bit much for a day trip (am I wrong)?

Thanks for the advice, and would love a first hand report if anyone has been to the Loire Maisons above!
