For adults alone it is OK - average value for money. However, children go free and they will really enjoy the 4D film. There should also be a vine machine simulator, but it was broken when we visited. For adults, there is a tasting (one very small glass of Sancerre), but it is not worth visiting if you are hoping...

Bonjour, thank you for your message. We're sorry for the broken tractor simulator, we try to repair it. Indeed la Maison des Sancerre is not a place to taste many sancerre wines it's more a museum to discover the wine area. The best place to taste is in the wineries! Nevertheless we take note of your remark and we'll try... More

They've redone the museum. You need to take a new look. But please fix the tractor. Some new things in the gift shop as well.

Spent a fascinating hour in this well kept and well laid out attraction. Learnt about all the different landscapes of the Sancerre region and why they are like they are, all that goes into a making of a bottle of wine and then you get to try a white wine from the region. Nice little gift shop too.

My wife and I drove to Sancerre from our hotel in Bourges - it was an easy and beautiful drive through the golden fields of colza. About 45 minutes or so. When we arrived, we parked on the outer circle drive around this hill town and walked up until we found the Maison des Sancerre. We were there on a... More

There's a room of really good information about the wine. There's a small garden with information about things that grow. And there's a glass of wine at the end. By itself, this would not be enough to recommend a visit. But... THERE'S A 4D THEME PARK STYLE RIDE in which you pretend to be a grape flown by a ladybug... More

Bonjour, We are glad you enjoyed our new animation the dynamic cinema. However, we regret that you did not mention the informative part of the tour, called the illuminated space that gives serious information about the vineyards of Sancerre : history, soils, training and management of the vines, process of making wine... This space is maybe not reported enough and... More

Had an amazing time in Sancerre, the museum is worth the visit it gives you the history of the wine and life in the region. Very welcoming the children enjoyed it to and the tasting was a treat too. The views are brilliant you look down onto the Loire river and all around you are vast hills all with grapevines.... More

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.
