One of the largest and most established sparkling wine producers in the region, this company gets five stars for many reasons, but most of all for making Zéro - a sparkling wine without sugar for the crispest, best sparkling around. In addition to tastings (of many delicious offerings), they offer tours of their facility with education on how wine is... More

The caves are extensive and it is worth going just to see them. Our tour guide was good, but frankly I did not care for their wine. But, try it, and you may like it!

We usually are not fans of winery tours and tastings, but Bouvet-Ladubay is an exception. The tour through the tunnels with their history and stone carvings was both fun and educational. Our guide was excellent and had impeccable English. The wine tasting was handled efficiently, although the wines were not to our liking. This is a worthwhile diversion if you... More

We visited Ackerman (another cave based vineyard on the same street) prior to visiting Bouvet Ladubay and after having a brilliant time at Ackerman, we were worried this would be more of the same. However we had an equally excellent time and there was enough differences to make both tours worth doing on the same day. We went on the... More

Great visit (second time) of the incredible wine waves of Bouvet Ladubay. Wonderful guide who spoke very well and showed us round the underground wine cellars of Bouvet Ladubay. Great tasting afterwards of the local speciality: bubbly wine! A must to do if you're in Saumur, and if you're not planning to go, you should!

Slightly impersonal as this is not a family run cave and unfortunately the site is no longer used for any wind production. Interestingly they do not even own any vineyards and all the grapes are brought in from other growers. So the tour of the caves is more a basic lesson in how the wine is made. Personally, I would...

Hello and thank you for your rating of our caves. As you may have heard, our winery is a growing business, but we try nevertheless to keep each of our visits different, whilst teaching the 'basics of winemaking' and all the cultural heritage of the house. This house is in fact once more family owned and since November last. Our... More
