We went to visit the caves on dec 24dec at 4 pm with illuminate style. The overall visit was great and interesting to learn. Our tour guide without name tag,was not too accurate on our question and didn't know some issues. As for the last light show on the main and huge barrel we were surprised to see that light show which is not reflecting the history of the caves and we were expecting other issues like the landscaping surrounding by vineyards or various uniforms or dresses on that historic period...need to be adjusted. Thanks JL.B

The history of Byrrh is fascinating! I had never heard of it before our friend shared Byrrh with us at her home nearby. I was amazed to learn that Byrrh was widely sold, even in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th century. Now, very little is made. Byrrh is a combination of red wine, mistelle, quinine, and various other natural ingredients and was initially marketed as a health drink! The tour has an English audio guide available which is triggered as you move through the caves. The visual presentations are quite entertaining. I enjoyed learning about the history of the Violet brothers, who founded the company, and how progressive they were toward their employees.

I was lucky enough to find out this place, which it was not on my itinerary, but since it was a rainy day I thought to myself why not. It was great! They provide a handheld translator to English, since the tour is in French, and it works wonders:) many visual effects (colorful projections) and lots of history behind all of the items displayed while you tour the Cave. I definitely recommend!

A fascinating place to visit and close to the town centre. We had an informative tour with English audio-guides and thoroughly enjoyed tasting the end products. The gift shop also has a great collection of wines to purchase, as well as sundry souvenirs. Very friendly staff.

We turned to be the only family registering for the tour at 10.45. so we had a private tour with interactive presentation on various screens in several locations of the factory. Very nice to see a mix of old and new, and the large wine barrel is amazing. We bought several bottles of byrrh and are now ordering more online. A must see while in Thuir.
