“A Must See Stop in Sancerre”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

While in Sancerre I visited the museum. The exhibits were so informative about the history of the area, the soils that grow the grapes, the types of grapes grown, and changes over the years. The visit starts with a presentation of the land. Then with a 3d art form workers are projected in miniature as if harvesting right in front if you. Then in the other rooms they have art and videos of vintners throughout that you can look out. Outside there is a garden with a beautiful view showing different types of grapes. Once you end your visit it ends with a wine tasting from the region & the wine was fantastic! The visit was worth way more than the small fee we paid to go in. Aside from the wonders of the museum the woman working was so knowledgable, friendly & kind. Make sure to visit if you travel to Sancerre.

“Professional, interesting, well worth a visit”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

Very interesting, informative and well-laid out, modern presentation of the history of wine making in the Sancerre region. Worth every cent of the 5 Euro entrance charge for an adult. The videos are all subtitled in English, as are the information displays. Would highly recommend this.

“Maison des Sancerre”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

After our first visit 5 years ago, my wife & I visited "La Maison des Sancerre" for the second time. It is a great place dedicated to the vineyards of Sancerre.
We just love the lit-up displays in the museum, including the inter-active screens and the 3D viewing panels. The film showing the origins of Sancerre thru-time is truly a masterpiece. The staff members are wonderful and friendly and the Sauvignon Blanc after the tour is superb. Don't forget to visit the garden in the rear of the building, it is very well designed, and has canvas posters showing the area. The view across the valley is wonderful. Well done, we'll be back!
