  • I'm hoping it was covid but a poor experience. We showed up and no one was there. We finally found someone in the back and got a wine tasting. It was incredibly rushed like they wanted us to leave...

  • We spent a lovely afternoon by the Loire River enjoying the views and sunshine. We had a bottle of Vouvray (2012) which was a perfect match to our charcuterie and foie gras de maison. We chatted...

  • I am going to preface this slightly harsh review with some context-- I had visited 4 other caves in the prior week and had those experiences in mind. I was underwhelmed with Caves Duhards. The tour guide dropped us off with a Duhards rep whose name I didn't catch. In fact, I didn't even know the name of the caves until I got home as there were 2 names. Parts of the cave were unique and engaging-- the smelling barrels, the talk & the beginning and the actual tasting. I wanted to give it 5 stars based on the smelling activity and the tasting alone & in a vacuum I would have. I learned SO much from those experiences. However, there was a chunk in the middle were there was no guide and a video & it was not great. The caves were outfitted like a museum but dark so without a guide we had to read by flashlight if interested (most people skipped it) and those of us who stopped to read missed the video that tge rest saw. So, I walked away learning very little about the history of the caves, the wine they specifically make, if they even do make it anymore all while feeling very rushed. So, as compared to the 4 other wine caves we visited I found this one to be far less personal (more commercialized), and sadly, none of the wines really stood out to me.
  • Four of us had a great experience here tasting wines and enjoying an incredible 1 meter long charcuterie board loaded with all local cheeses and greens, wine jams… It was curated salty to sweet with sheep, goat and cow cheeses. All delicious. We also enjoyed incredible breads, and a smaller local meat tray and a serving of escargot. The recommended accompanying wines were paired perfectly. The staff was very professional and kindly compensated for our poor French with their superb English. The setting is charming, the caves full of aging wines and there are several different event rooms to explore. We had an overall great experience here. Highly recommend.
  • Wine tasting EUR5 per person Restaurant is on the first floor Vegetable salad with local produces Mixed platter with numerous cheese choices, terrains and flavored ham Polite and friendly staff
  • Really great place to taste wine and purchase wines. The staff was very friendly and spoke good English as well. We were lucky enough to meet the owner Pascal, who gave us a very special tasting tour as well. Thank you Pascal and team for your kind hospitality!
