The must-see underground cellars here are among the most unusual in the world, as they are carved out under the town at an astonishing depth of 12 metres. Tuffeau, the famous yellow-white stone used for the construction of the castles in the Loire region, was extracted from here. Guides will walk you through the seemingly magical transformation of carefully selected grapes into a myriad of delicate, swirling sparkling wines. Constantly kept at 12°C, an astonishing 4 million bottles are stored in this unique place.
A pleasant weekday outing or on Sundays during the season. Enjoy a guided tour with family or friends. Cyclists welcome (“Accueil vélo”) and part of “La Loire à vélo” cycle route. Part of the discovery tour of Saumur.
