This cave is a wonderful way to spend 2-3 hours, It is a beautiful facility in impeccable upkeep. The store is extremely well done and the staff are extraordinarily accommodating. The family history is well told and very impressive. The tour is extremely interesting even for young adults. The caves are remarkable and the walking is comfortable. As for the... More

The location is really beautiful, the cellars are really enjoyable to visit. Unfortunatelly, when paying for the cheapest service, the experience is not so great. It is a self visit, no explanations about the building, the history of the company, even the wines tasted!!

The most beautiful tour and house that we have been to. Easy to find. Pay for parking on the street near the laundromat. Stopped at Rue Carnot for lunch after the tour.

The ambiance, history and wine tasting make this a very memorable and "must do" visit if you are ever in the area.

Living so close to Napa, I was surprised by how different a winery visits was here. The caves are super extensive. There are old bottles of wine everywhere. I just loved the feel of it. As for the tasting, you are given a little metal cup which you keep at the end. So much more practical than a glass that... More

This cave was great fun and our favourite in Beaune. They have over 5km of underground passages storing wine! The tasting and self guided tour is only about 400m thankfully. Show interest at the end of the tour and they might let you taste something special.

We made a quick decision to visit Beaune with our guests from our canal boat nearby in Chagny. After a must do visit to the famous Hospice de Beaune and laid back lunch in a square, we made our way to this friendly and easy to use Cave. It was way more than we expected. We really enjoyed touring their... More

We went for a self guided tour. The caves are interesting. They have millions of wine bottles. You walk at your own pace to explore the venue. At the end you can do wine tastings of about 13 wines, on your own, without any pressure to buy anything.
