Owner description: Situated at 12m underground in the centre of Saumur, the Louis de Grenelle wine cellars have been producing, in the purest tradition, Cremant de Loire and Saumur Brut ever since 1859. In this former tufa quarry, you will discover the secrets of traditional wine-producing methods. After the guided tour there will be a commented wine-tasting session. You will also be able to discover wine in a wine-dedicated space.

“Beautiful Wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Visited and purchased some wine in 2011, so it was a must to return this year. We were not disappointed, the sparkling wine was just as and enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, definately well worth a visit where you can buy some lovely sparkling wine.

An interesting tour of the wine cellars and tasting session. Staff were very friendly and helpful. What a great insight into the production of wine in the Loire Valley!

“Gem in Saumur”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We were given coupons for free tasting at the castle and had to check it out. We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. The sparkling wines were all excellent! Our hostess was very knowledgeable and a delight to talk with. Her English was excellent. Definitely worth the trip. Didn't take the tour, but we've seen plenty of caves so didn't feel the need.

“Excellent sparkling and the caves are worth a visit (it's cheap, sometimes free)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Excellent sparkling wine. Frequently purchase, as it's so much better value than those from the Champagne region.

“Don't miss out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

We came across Louis De Grenelle while out for a walk and then spent a fabulous hour there. Sparkling wines were beautiful and we were very well looked after. Our only complaint is that we can't find their wines in Australia!
