Overview
More
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.

Highlight of our time in Saumur. Great detail in the cellar tour and sufficient range of sparkling wines to try and get an appreciation of the wines. Not bad price to cellar tour/tasting ratio either.

Visited the caves and the wine tasting. A nice experience, although not as elaborate as in (for instance) Reims. The wines Louis de Grenelle has are distinct and very good quality (I stocked up for my own cellar while there). Recommend to visit.

This was a great little find - slightly out of the town. For only a couple of euros, you get a proper tour of the winery and find out how they make the wine. Following this, you are allowed to taste around 5 of the...More
