Roanne – Vineyard Bed & Breakfast

Domaine de FontenayIn the upper Loire Valley lies the appellation of the Côtes Roannaise AC – from the region around Roanne (42 Loire, Rhône-Alpes) – although a long way from the area most of us associate with the Loire Valley,
These are wines based on the Gamay grapes – best known as the Beaujolais grape. Here Englishman Simon Hawkins and hgb100is wife Isabelle have developed a very successful vineyard – Domaine du Fontenay.
But they also offer Bed and Breakfast (Chambre d’Hote) on the domaine – with 4 non-smoking rooms themed after different grape varieties – Gamay, Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinot Noir – the rooms offering great views over the vines – and the opportunity to taste some of the vineyard’s wines and learn something about wine-making in France.
