Warm welcome. Our tour guide Claire did her first tour in English and was so friendly and nice. We had a lovely experience. Learnt a lot and enjoyed every minute. Amazing caves. Beautiful Art Deco building. Wine tasting was great fun.

A great visit to a wine cellar with a difference: it is located in caves! We got to see where the wine is stored and how the caves were excavated, along with an explanation on how Gratien et Meyer started. We finished with a wine tasting - delicious! :-) The people were so friendly as well! Worth a visit, even for non-wine drinkers as it's interesting to see the caves.

this trip was very well run and organized. you get given a little wand that you point at numbers on the tour and it gives you all the history and detail you need. then at the end of your self tour the wine tasting.

We visited this beautiful building for a tasting of fizz. The guy was really interesting but he was the only person serving so was very stretched and we had to wait a while and the whole thing became disjointed. Perhaps we shouldn't have visited at lunchtime...

Dear Jane, I am sorry that you had to wait a bit too long as there were only one person serving, I understand that it could be a disappointment in your visiting experience. In fact, you are right, during lunchtime we usally have only one person working, as we don't know how many visitors there will be. Please accept our appologies, and feel free to book for a tour and a tasting in the future, we will be happy to welcome you another time and give you the attention you expect. Anyway, thank you very much for your comment, we are glad that you enjoyed our estate and our sparkling wines. Kind regards, Armand, Tourism Manager.

We did the tour with a couple of friends . A very charming English speaking guide took us through the caves and explained the story of Gratien & Meyer and sparkling wine making .Fascinating ! She later told us it was her first time doing the tour - well done! Think her name was Claire - she is an asset to the company. Loved the tasting experience too - very generous sampling in beautiful surroundings. Thank you.

We had a fantastic meal, the restaurant is delicious and in a very nice old house. There are not a large number of tables so book ahead. There was also a friendly cat that walked by us while we had drinks outside.

Holidaying in the Loire. Already big fans of Bouvet Ladubay Saumur . Thought we would try G&M as we have been Wine Society members for years and even served their Saumur Brut at our daughters christening 11 years ago... Anyway, enough of that , used the English audio tour as the guided version was French today. No matter, really interesting and learned a few new things about Saumur, Cremant de Loire and method traditionelle in general . And to follow..... a complete range tasting. What an eye opener!! Their Cremant knocked their Saumur into a cocked hat (or spittoon) as far as we were concerned and probably quite rightly the Flamme d’Or was exceptional. We will be popping back before the week is out for a purchase (or x30!!) And whilst I am writing it would be wrong to ignore the fact that our host also treated our daughter to a range tasting of the “Festillant” alcohol free range... so popular did it prove that we will need to find room for a half dozen of the white and rose to take home... oh yes and the appropriate glass ware of course. Definitely worth a punt if you have a spare couple of hours. Worth sending an email via their website to book a slot. Enjoy !!

A very interesting visit accompanied by a charming guide who took a lot of time to make sure all of our group understood her commentary. An extremely pleasant way to learn about wine making in the Loire Valley. Detailed tasting and smart shop.

Saumur possess some of the best sparking wine producers in all of France and Gratien et Mayer is clearly one of their best. With history dating back to the mid 1800s there's much to see and taste at this fine winery. The staff was very friendly, informed and shared their good command of the English language. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour through the caves and especially liked the wines we tasted. Only a few kilometers east of city center in Saumur, this is a destination not to be missed!

We had a lovely afternoon with Julie who helped us to understand the sparkling wines of the Loire with no pressure to buy. Great education and great Cremant de Loire. Recommended.
