Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Located 2km from the Castle of Chenonceau, come and share the passion of a winemaker and discover a family tradition in the freshness and intimacy of the cellars dug by our ancestor more than a century ago.
Reviewed 20 April 2012

We wanted to visit one of the smaller, family-run businesses instead of the huge places where tourists arrive by the busload, and we hit the nail on the head with the Caves du Pere Auguste. The host was proud to discuss each of the wines we tasted, and we were treated to a tour of the storage caves and old wine-press equipment. It was a pleasant, non-hurried, no-pressure experience.

The earlier review sums it all up!

Very friendly family run business, we had the opportunity to taste all the wines in the cave, Rose and whites were outstanding, and all for less than €4 per bottle.

Well worth stocking up, we did.

We first experienced the lovely wines from the Caves de Pere Auguste ten years ago and were lucky enough to visit again this year. It was early on a Saturday morning and we were welcomed into the cave and offered a number of wines to try. There was no pressure to buy anything and it was a big improvement on some of the bigger places we have been to where you can be made to feel as though you should be grateful to be allowed in. If you don't speak any French it may be wise to take a phrase book. All in all, well worth a visit to this friendly family -run vineyard.( my personal favourites are the Sauvignon and the Tradition. ) Don't miss it if you are in the area.

Hello,
I’m glad you enjoy our small winery and our wines. There’s usually at least one English speaker at home, sorry you arrived when we were both missing. Fortunately wines speak for themselves :)
See you next time for all your unsolved questions !

Adrien.
