The Maison des Vins de Bourgueil was set up 20 years ago by the wine producers, in the old family home of Jean Carmet, a famous French actor, a building dating from the 15th century, right in the centre of Bourgueil. Open all year, this is the opportunity to taste ten or so red and rose wines, and find out about the soils in the appellation which result in supple, light wines or wines for laying down, and to choose from 130 wines on sale at vineyard price. After your visit, why not explore the vineyards?

We discovered the Maison des Vins in Bourgueil a few years ago and have been going there every year since. They have a huge range of wines from the area. Each wine producer is... More

A visit to this establishment is a very good way of introducing yourself to tasting wine before you commit to buying it. The staff are helpful and provide plenty of information, but obviously it helps to be able to speak some French. The wines for sale range from a few Euros per bottle up to the price you would expect... More

The concept is good, having lots of different wines under one roof, but we found it confusing. There were a few specials for tasting. The staff on hand were very knowledgeable and ready to tell us about the wines and the way that they were grown. We preferred to visit local caves, taste the wine and buy those that we... More
