Les Caves Saint Charles was by far the best experience I ever had, from the many types of wine we had and knowledge you gain from the regions wine to the atmosphere of the Pope's old cave system. Mathias was our sommelier and he couldn't be more friendlier despite our bad French, his English was very good. I thought the... More

loved the setting, the information and of course the wine! Guy was great and we are still enjoying the many bottles we had sent over. This is a must do.

The only shopping you can do in Chateauneuf du Pape is definitely wine. There are literally hundreds of cellars and wine shops in which you can taste and buy wine. Guy's place is different in a few aspects: First, he is not a producer, thus can be more objective when presenting and recommending certain wines. Second, the setting in an... More

We were so excited to have an appointment booked with Guy, unfortunately we were let down when we arrived to a locked door. We later received an email saying he was on holiday after he had already confirmed our booking. What a joke!

One of the highlights of our trip, our traveling companions had visited twice before so we all went this time. Guy (pronounced Gee) know their wine but are not pretentious about it, eager to share their knowledge and ready to focus on your taste. They offer excellent shipping arrangements as well.

My wife and I visited this cave after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, talking with friends, and then speaking with some folks in France. Everyone had one thing to say: this is awesome. And it is! The cave is beautiful, Guy is a warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable fellow, and wines are unbelievable. They are spectacular. This review would not be... More

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
