Eat among the vines at La Table de la Bergerie!
La Table de la Bergerie is an incredible restaurant, located within a wine-producing estate to allow gastronomy and wine to closely intermingle. David Guitton, the brilliant head chef, is behind this rare initiative...
La Table de la Bergerie, born out of a love story!
At first glance, it appears right out of a romantic film. The story of the young chef who fell head over heels with the daughter of winemakers on the benches of hotel school and took her, chef's hat in hand, on a tour of the world before returning together to open the restaurant of their dreams... in the very vineyard run by the lovely girl's parents. A very happy ending indeed, but Anne and David Guitton's really was quite a crazy bet.
Wines from Domaine de la Bergerie to accompany the dishes
In the middle of these wonderful vines, David presides over the stoves while Anne keeps customers well-watered with Anjou, Savennières, Coteaux du Layon, Cabernet and Rosé de Loire, to name a few, all – naturally – from the family vines. Their little gourmet spot has around thirty seats, to which gastronomes flock from France and beyond. It's worth mentioning that David Guitton has cooked in the United States, Switzerland, London and Monaco, most notably under Alain Ducasse and Joël Robuchon.
Inspired and refined gastronomic cuisine
His delicate, inspired cooking flourishes here in mouthwatering and beautifully presented dishes. Diners might start off with locally grown artichokes served with toasted buckwheat and Paleta Puro Iberico ham, followed by the fish of the day served with broad beans, new potatoes and Colonata lardo, or aged pure-breed beef with tarragon jus cosying up to a handful of chanterelle mushrooms. Desserts include a wonderful brownie with pecans served with whisky cream and vanilla cappuccino, or a heady strawberry and white chocolate tart. Fantastic!
