This caveau (regional wine tasting room) is free and provides the opportunity to "visit" dozens of wineries at a single time. There is no obligation to buy anything, but our group bought several bottles for opening later during our stay in Cairanne.

Not the friendliest wine tasting I have ever attended. The staff did not appear anxious to engage in any manner. There is lots of wine to choose from and taste though. If you are keen on trying Gigondas wine then head here, otherwise, don't bother.

Recommended to us by ColinElliott of Loire Valley Wine Tour this maison de vin is quite exceptional. Huge range of Gigondas wines are available to taste - the problem is to know which to ask for. Colin gave us a list of a few they had tasted and purchased in the summer and we were warned to research the wines... More
