“A wine experience”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

This is a quite excellent experience. The displays are superb and in English if you wish. Absolutely superb for information on Sancerre wine making. The use of locals to tell the tale was inspired.Best of all you get a free wine tasting at the end and get to keep the glass.

“Highly informative”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

A brilliant museum. Take the time to watch the videos, you'll learn a lot about winemaking! Te tasting at the end is a healthy glass of wine. The only downside was that the videos were not for sale, i suspect for copyright reasons, because I could watch them again and again. Lovely staff too.
