Super fun! Learned more about the history of this local wine growing area. The presentation was innovative and used large posters and video displays to create an informative and interactive approach to winemaking in this region. Our host spoke English clearly and was always understandable.

What a brilliant tour, we knew nothing about wines and learned so much that now we can appreciate the good "stuff". Our guide was the winery owner and he was great, he had a wonderful sense of humour and was so enthusiastic about his wines and taught us a lot. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone if you want to learn about wines or even if you know a lot about them as the tasting part was fantastic.

Excellent tour of the caves as well as lesson from a sommelier in understanding and enjoying wines. The tour included some interesting videos of wine in the Loire Valley over the past century: very informative. And then the wine tasting itself was enjoyable and educational with food pairing addition.
