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!

Excellent tour of the caves as well as lesson from a sommelier in understanding and enjoying wines. The tour included some interesting videos of wine in the Loire Valley over the past century: very informative. And then the wine tasting itself was enjoyable and educational with food pairing addition.
