Owner description: Situated at 12m underground in the centre of Saumur, the Louis de Grenelle wine cellars have been producing, in the purest tradition, Cremant de Loire and Saumur Brut ever since 1859. In this former tufa quarry, you will discover the secrets of traditional wine-producing methods. After the guided tour there will be a commented wine-tasting session. You will also be able to discover wine in a wine-dedicated space.

We are regular customers of Louis de Grenelle as we love their fizz. The tour through the caves and learning about the processes to make their fizz, as well as the degustation at the end of the tour is well worth while. A recommendation much enjoyed by guests who stay with us too. Conveniently situated close to the town centre of Saumur makes it ideal to combine with a restaurant meal or tour of Saumur Chateau.

We visited the Caves Louis de Grenelle recently during our driving holiday to the Loire. As we were the only ones on the tour as it was the last one of the day our guide who spoke excellent English gave myself and my wife a most interesting, informative, and entertaining tour of the underground caves.At the end of the tour we indulged in the wine tasting and tried some of the different varieties of sparkling wines and were very impressed. Needless to say we bought several bottles back with us to the UK.

very hard to find as french road signs are very scare but google maps saved the day, once in the caves, the young brunette was more than helpful, we had a full tour of the caves and then had the opportunity to sample however many wines we choose. she was not pushy in closing out a sale, just wanting to help us out and give a lasting memory, the young lady made me forget all about the lack of signage and was always willing to help

We are happy to learn that you enjoyed the visit. I will transmit your comment to our guide!
We know that it is not always easy to find us : it depends on the direction that you come from. The town council permits only a limited number of road signs.
It will be a real pleasure to welcome you back next time.

Visited and purchased some wine in 2011, so it was a must to return this year. We were not disappointed, the sparkling wine was just as and enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, definately well worth a visit where you can buy some lovely sparkling wine.
