Great time, nice tour and very generous with the wine tasting. So cool how long it’s been in the family. They take you to the cellar then you can taste all the varieties. Would definitely recommend!!

We came without notice on a rainy April day enroute from Tours to Orleans. They happily obliged with the tasting and when additional staff became available we also got to tour the winemaking facilities. Great tour and good wines - I highly recommend a visit!

Yes, this place can be busy but that is beacause it is easily accessible. If the tourist buses are there, there is plenty of other local producers to visit in Charge and then return. Very reasonable prices and an excellent range of wine.

We were staying near Amboise and decided to take a break from the stunning history and the 'inclement' weather. The treat was a personally escorted tour of the caves and a perfect explanation of the whole process involved in the production of near to 300k...More

I'd dreamt of going to the Loire Valley for decades, and my husband and I finally went last June at the end of a 2-week trip. We stayed in Amboise, and visiting a local winery was a must. After doing some research, we chose Plou...More
