“The cave that's not a cave!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We thought we were in for some wine tasting in a cave - but it was so much more!!!
From the beginning to the end of the 2and a half hour tour, our host, Stephane was perfect. He was extremely knowledgable, helpful, friendly and a bit naughty playing tricks on us pretending to have forgotten the way out!
The caves themselves were amazing, full of information and artefacts from years gone and all perfectly preserved because of the temperature and humidity.
After the tour we tasted 5 different wines accompanied by fresh locally produced food whilst listening to jazz in the most stylishly decorated cave I have ever frequented!!!!
Fantastic trip we thoroughly recommend it although not for the extremely tall or claustrophobic as it is dark and some parts of the cave are quite low.

Going to Troglo Degusto in the Loire Valley. Why?

Here you will be greeted by Stephane Josseau (Steff) who will take you on an unforgettable walk into miles of underground caves( tunnel). Any Historian will be thrilled by all information which he has at his finger tips( I thought and expected to hear about wine only ! )

After the tour/ walk we returned to the underground winebar and the sampling began!! Four different tastes..accompanied by local delicacies matching each wine.
I don't want to give too much away because I do hope you'll visit.

But I will say that he is an exceptional welcoming host who obviously loves his wine and tourists..

Before you leave you are invited to leave a message on the wall. At the entrance of the Cave. I did.....in Welsh, of course!
