How disappointing. We travelled to Chateauneuf-du-Pape having arranged an appointment with Guy and exchanging e-mails the previous week to confirm, only to find a locked door. No response even we waited and continued to knock. Even an e-mail to Guy didn't get any response. Finally we gave up and wandered into the centre of the village where we found Daniele... More

We had a wonderful time tasting wines from Chateauneuf-du-Pape with Guy. He was quick to respond to my email asking to book a reservation. The cave room where we had the tasting was a beautiful setting. Guy is extremely knowledgable about wine and a natural teacher. He taught us how to slurp the wine and we all worked on pinpointing...

We had such a wonderful wine tasting time at Cave St. Charles with master sommelier Guy! The atmosphere is fantastic (inside a real cave), and the hospitality and wines tasted were wonderful! We highly recommend a visit to this beautiful place during your tour of the Chateauneuf de Pape region.

Mathias was our sommelier while visiting Les Caves Saint Charles to purchase a case of wine. If you are a serious wine-lover, this experience will stick with you forever. You have a vast source of knowledge in Mathias who is also perfectly friendly and accommodating. Not to mention, his English is perfect and he still indulged my fiance's basic French... More

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
