If you are a true wine enthusiast, this is a must. The hosts have an exceptional knowledge of wine and the tasting experience was fun and educational. Their selection of local wines is also second to none.

The "caves" are really, really small, really claustrophobic and you get a really serious pitch on buying their very expensive wine. The knowledgebase is great but it is not worth a visit.

Guy the sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and very down to earth, he made our tasting superb. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a beautiful place to visit on its own but you should definitely do a tasting here if you do it anywhere, the place is beatuiful in a really nice area. We tasted 9 excellent wines and all came away with several bottles,... More

Guy is a great guy - down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and sincere. He took us through the classic and contemporary range of wines in the region, helping to dispel the stigma of Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines being big, chewy things that only go well with a hunk of venison. The tasting room (or cave) is dark, candle-lit, with a bit of Gregorian chanting in... More

We were welcomed to Les Caves by Mathias who was very charming. This was our first wine tasting in France and he talked us through the basics and the history of Chateauneuf-du-Pape before tasting 1 white, 2 modern and 4 old school wines. There was no pressure to buy but we did of course buy a mixed case of 6... More

We arrived a little late for our booking but our host Mathias made us feel so welcome. He was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well - we enjoyed our wine tasting (we love our wines but know nothing about French wines) and Mathias helped us select a case of wine to ship back home to Australia for us to...

It was very nice on a hot day in Provence descend into the cool cave and with Guy's help familiarize ourselves with wonderful wines. Even without a deep knowledge of wine, we shortly felt ourselves like sommeliers :). Black currant, tobacco, leather scents of wine - all that we felt, of course, with the help of a third generation winemaker... More

We are currently having a long holiday in Uzes, and have booked two visits via email with Guy over the past month. The first booking was memorable because I emailed him after midnight for a long-shot request the following day, and he replied immediately and positively. Both visits (with different friends) were excellent, with Guy giving us an excellent overview... More

My husband and I are from Florida and we were traveling with another couple from CA and casually walked into this winery to see if we could have a wine tasting. The representative (host) Mathias Mansis welcomed us and gave us an interesting background of this wine facility. He spoke good English and made us feel special. I highly recommend... More
