Make sure you start your Sancerre experience here! Explained on a sound and light make exactly how this unique growing area came to be. There is also a 4D cinema experience that will definitely please children of all ages. Well worth a visit and the entry fee! If you come with a vigneron you can climb the tower too for... More

This is well worth a visit and we spent an hour or so here. The children loved the 4D movie and the outside garden. I enjoyed learning more about the winemaking process and the glass of wine offered at the end.

Pleasant staff and serves as a nice visitor center for the area and its history of winemaking. There is a nice view of the valley below from the terrace.

We ended up at this museum by hazard, not supposed to visit Sancerre. This museum was a highly positive surprise. Set up in this tiny village of Sancerre, the explications on the wine (origins, process, history) are well described and very well supported by a talk on the area with 3D maquette, 4D movie (don't miss it, you'll be surprised!)...

The local museum dedicated to the Sancerre wine has been well modernised and now has a 4D experience. There are English translations on most of the displays.

A great experience and well worth the time and modest fee. At the end of the tour/experience you will receive a complimentary glass of wine which you can take on the porch overlooking the lovely countryside.

There's a ton of information here on the history of wine production in the region, the phylloxera disease, the kinds of wine and the method of production and so on. It's well presented - a few static boards but enough movie-style bits thrown in. As other reviews have mentioned, there are some rather gimmicky bits - a "grape-eye's" view of... More

Well worth the visit if only to have experienced the surprises offered by the 4D film.....brilliant fun. However Sancerre wine comes in both red and rose versions and so it was a disappointment to only have the opportunity for a "degustation" of a white wine ...good though it was. The gift shop is well stocked and attentively managed by multilingual... More
