Overview

Situated at 12m underground in the centre of Saumur, the Louis de Grenelle wine cellars have been producing, in the purest tradition, Cremant de Loire and Saumur Brut ever since 1859. In this former tufa quarry, you will discover the secrets of traditional wine-producing methods. After the guided tour there will be a commented wine-tasting session. You will also be able to discover wine in a wine-dedicated space.

A fascinating 40 minute underground tour followed by generous wine tastings of white, rose and red sparkling wines. Many of them as good as you will find anywhere, including the C place. All for E2.50 each. Amazing.
