Owner description: Chateau Gaudrelle is a family-run exploitation of 50 acres. We produced Vouvray wine since 1931. You are welcome to visit our cellars (cave) and to enjoy a commented wine tasting.Alexandre Monmousseau produce still and sparkling Vouvrays which are now recognised as being amongst the very finest of the appellation.

We visited this winery on the recommendation of the B&B we were staying at. The man who met us was very welcoming, and was happy to talk us through a tasting and take us on a short tour of the cellars, even though we turned up without a reservation in the middle of the harvest.
The wine is fantastic, although we regret that we were only able to bring home 2 bottles. We hope that they begin exporting to Australia soon!

Alexandres enthusiasm and pride for what he does, and has achieved, is both infectious and entertaining. Thanks to local and UK contacts, he devoted over 3 hours to just the four of us, but his wines were excellent, and affordable. He speaks superb English, and was not in the least phased by our basic knowledge of wine. Quite the opposite, in fact; he launched into a prolonged and brilliantly educational presentation of his wines as a result. Meet him, and buy - we did!

We were staying in Tours and decided to go for a wine tasting. Most of them were closed on Sunday but not this one. It was great!!! The young lady was very nice, she spoke english and french. The visit was informative and informal. We have a 3 yr old and she even had crayons to keep her entertained. We only stayed for tasting, didn't do the caves. Great Service!

We took a trip out to Chateau Gaudrelle via one of the TA chaps in Tours and he did not steer us wrong. We actually missed to first bus to go out there and the next one was not until 2 hours later, so we were able to fill in a little time, we had a coffee and took a stroll around the area and saw a trial run of the new trams that will soon be in place. We get on the local bus and said to the driver that this is where we want to get off. He had no English and we had very little French. So we were sitting opposite two lovely ladies and they were asking everyone on the bus did they know where we should get off. One of the passengers sited it before us and pulled the bell so the driver just dropped us right outside. People were brilliant in the areas we travelled in.

We went into the office and asked for Charles, but unfortunately he was busy and asked us would we mind if Antwan could show us around. It was a first class tour as there was no one else there at the time (Thursday, 30th May 2013). We were really spoiled with attention. If you want to experience a beautiful little winery then this is the one to go to. We even bought a few wines and they were delightful and we wished we had bought more but we were only at the beginning of our 8 week holiday.

We decided that we would not bother to catch the bus back and walked and what a beautiful walk it was. The scenery was spectacular and with the La Loire River being so full and strong flowing we really enjoyed the walk back. That in itself was worth doing.
