The young lady behind the desk was very pleasant and very well informed. The exhibitions were laid out well and easy to follow. The videos conveyed the essence of wine growing not just bare facts but the way of life past and present. The virtual tractor ride is a fun way to end the tour before heading for the terrace and a taster of wine and the glass it is served in as a souvenier.

Lots of explanation on well laid out boards. Clips (with sub-titles) of people talking about different aspects of Sancerre and its wine business (and seats whilst you listen). Good view from the terrace.

We approached Sancerre via the woods to the West, southwest (not via the Loire), as we came out in to the Vineyards that rolled gently over the fields in front of us and then spotted the hill top town it was picture perfect. We found our hotel and then walked to a outlook point and again picture perfect as the view dropped away to the Loire.
If you are on the way to the south of France or on the way back (for us based in the UK), it's a must stop of.
The wine purchased there is better than you can get in th UK for the same price, just as an added bonus.
Mason des Sancerre was a useful stop to get information very quickly and than you to the young lady who served/helped us.

A very nice introduction to wine making in the Sancerre area. The museum is well laid out and has some interesting exhibits. The filmed interviews with the locals about past harvests are fascinating.

Beautifully presented and refurbished establishment. All you could want to know about wine in Sancere. A bit expensive though.
