The tour combines sensory experiences and a journey through the history of wine. Then, enjoy a gourmet break at Bistrot L’Oppidum.

Caves Monmousseau in Montrichard  

Caves Monmousseau in the Cher Valley features 15 km of underground galleries. A true labyrinth in the tuffeau stone!  With this tour, learn how they make their sparkling wines, for which the cellar has been famous since the late 19th century. Understand every step involved in making sparkling wine, including cultivating the vines, harvest, bottling and the various maturing stages. Finish your tour by checking out the trail of projections. The tuffeau stone walls transform into life-sized canvases, on which are projected bright images of the Loire’s greatest Châteaux.

Clos Saint-Fiacre in Mareau-aux-Prés  

The last stage of the trip is Mareau-aux-Près, near Orléans. That is where Cave du Clos Saint-Fiacre has been writing its history and that of its wines since... 1635! Here, the Montigny-Piel family cultivates vines to produce white, red and rosé wines in the Orléans AOC and red wines in the Orléans-Cléry AOC. Today, the estate stretches across 17 hectares, and prides itself on producing its wines in a carefully thought-out way, ensuring that the environment is respected. Bénédicte and Hubert Piel will be delighted to welcome you to the cellar, to discover and taste their wines.
