Wine tasting and more in Doué-en-Anjou

This travel guide will help you plan your stay and organize a wine tasting in some of the best wineries nearby.

A small town of barely ten thousand inhabitants, Doué-en-Anjou is strategically located in the Anjou wine region.

Although Doué-en-Anjou is not located on the banks of the Loire, it is the entry point to three remarkable Loire appellations: Saumur wines to the east, sweet wines from the Coteaux du Layon to the west… and the young Saumur Puy-Notre-Dame appellation to the southeast, where a new generation of talented winemakers are producing remarkable red wines.

Doué-en-Anjou is a welcome stopping point on the Anjou wine route. Families with children will be able to visit the BioParc (zoo), in an atypical decor of old quarries. Heritage lovers can visit the romantic ruins of the Saint-Denis Collegiate Church, the “troglodyte” dwellings of the Perrières site or the arenas of Doué, they are superbly preserved. It is true that they do not date from the Gallo- Roman, but that is also what make them original.

Also, the region of Doué-en-Anjou has small villages of character really worth visiting : the closest being Montreuil-Bellay and Le Puy Notre Dame, an ideal stopover village for … wine tasting.
