Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

An excellent activity. 2.50 euros for a 40 minute tour and tasting session is very reasonable. Gave the tour in English and French. Ring ahead for times.

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.

Didn't do the caves tour this time, just wine tasting in the shop. Lots of different wines to try. Staff very knowledgeable. Some really nice sets of wine in boxes to buy as presents, available as well. Ended up buying 20 bottles but it was my mum's birthday and we were having a party.

Having read about this attraction and staying overnight in Saumur we were pleased that we arrived on a Saturday afternoon with enough time to visit the cellars. After checking into our hotel we made our way over and easily found the "Caves"
Unfortunately when we arrived we were told that there were no tours that weekend .
Staff were extremely pleasant and offered us the chance to try various wines before we purchased any.
Their wines were very good and we do hope that we will return one day and be able to do the cellar tour.

Bonjour,

Nous vous remercions de l’intérêt que vous portez à notre maison familiale.

Et nous vous remercions d'avoir pris le temps de déposer un commentaire.

Nous sommes ravis que votre dégustation commentée vous ai satisfait.

Nous sommes désolés que vous n'ayez pu accéder aux caves, effectivement ce week end était particulièrement chargé car se déroulait à Saumur le festival international des musiques militaires et nous avons eu la chance ,pendant ce week end , d'accueillir un grand nombre de ces formations, d'où notre impossibilité de répondre a toutes les demandes.

Mais soyez en sûr, lors de votre prochaine visite, nous ferons tout pour satisfaire votre souhait de visiter nos caves uniques à 12 mètres sous terre en plein cœur de Saumur.

A très bientôt,

le service des visites.

The tour through the extensive cellars was really fascinating. We saw wine being bottled, saw how it is turned and how sediment is removed. It was well organised and concluded with a wine tasting. No pressure to purchase - but we did anyway!
More than worth the €2.50!
