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.

Visited the caves and did some wine tasting. Staff were fantastic, they took the time to cover all the points of the caves, the wine process and explained the different wines. Even the local traditions and ceremonies. Wine tasting was very good too, we got a good lesson in understanding the different local wines ... must see visit ... take a jumper it's pretty cold down there.

Fascinating underground tour - there are 3km of passageways under the winery. Our tour guide gave us a tour in both English and French lasting about 45 mins, followed by a tasting of 4 sparkling wines. All this for just 2.5 euros each! Absolutely no pressure to buy wine at the end - although it was so delicious that we did buy some bottles to take home! Highly recommended.

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.
