A very worthwhile visit which really surprised me with its very contemporary presentation of the 'terroir'. Makes you appreciate what goes into the nurturing and growing in this area. A lovely insight into the wine growers and their love of the grape.

This is a quite excellent experience. The displays are superb and in English if you wish. Absolutely superb for information on Sancerre wine making. The use of locals to tell the tale was inspired.Best of all you get a free wine tasting at the end and get to keep the glass.

A brilliant museum. Take the time to watch the videos, you'll learn a lot about winemaking! Te tasting at the end is a healthy glass of wine. The only downside was that the videos were not for sale, i suspect for copyright reasons, because I could watch them again and again. Lovely staff too.

Self guided tour giving all the information you need about the production of this excellent French wine. All the panels are in French and English and the videos in French with English sub titles. There is a herb garden outside and the tour ends with a glass of Sancerre. Follow the red trail around the town.

This is a very well designed museum that offers a good history of Loire Valley wine making. It offers some good multimedia demonstrations as well as a self-paced section with instructive, informative panels on local wine making practices. There is also a garden (with vines) and an upper-deck with great views. The self-paced tour ends with a glass of Sancere.... More
