What a brilliant tour, we knew nothing about wines and learned so much that now we can appreciate the good "stuff". Our guide was the winery owner and he was great, he had a wonderful sense of humour and was so enthusiastic about his wines and taught us a lot. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone if you want to learn about wines or even if you know a lot about them as the tasting part was fantastic.

We purchased this tour on GetYorGuide to visit a typical troglodyte winery while passing through Amboise. The cellar can be reached very easily (it takes about 10 minutes on foot from the castle). The place is truly impressive and the guides are very kind and prepared. During the tour you can also try an olfactory game, guessing blindly the various aromas of the wine. The tour ends with an excellent and abundant tasting of different wines of their production. To try their cheeses, exceptional! Absolutely recommended! Unmatched value for money!

Just with both of us. Good English speaking guide, who tells us how the b works in 15 minutes, after that we did a round with three videos. Tasting of different red and white wines with good explanations, and with snacks (+€5), not pushy to sell. Recommended
