Wine Tour & Tasting in the Louve District
An interesting, self-guided tour of the winery, ending with wine tastings in a stone cellar with Sommelier pouring. It was here that I was introduced to Sancerre wine, a region in France where grapes to make Sauvignon Blanc are produced. The tour took our family of 4 approximately 2.5 hours. Make sure to book an appointment.

Fantastic Site
Jan. 2020 • Friends
Booked a visit to les Caves du Louvre and was totally blown away with the site. Interactive displays gave understanding of the wine making process. But the best part was the tasting at the completion, along with the bottles we took away. The barman at the end was great, very interested in where we were from and the wines produced.

Great wine tasting with Tejas
Feb. 2020 • Couples
We used the Paris Pass to do this activity, and it was completely worth it. The tour previous to the wine tasting is amazing, and the wines are super good. We had an amazing Sommelier, Tejas, who taught us how to really taste the wine and gave us an unforgettable experience.

Extremely great experience, definitely will recommend.

Super cool tour!
Feb. 2020
We ended up having private tour as no one else booked same time/day. Tour guide spoke very good English and was funny, kind, and helpful. All of the wines were delicious and there is even a little bar inside that you can go to after your tour, or at any time during your stay in Paris! Highly recommend as it is great for the price you pay.

Im not really a wine person, but when you're in Paris this is a must! Our guide was hilarious and made all of us feel comfortable and welcome. The caves are absolutely beautiful and the experience was unique and fun. We got to try 3 different wines and partake in some activities to help us with our wine knowledge. No regrets!

Dear Mike D, Thank you for your feedback. As you said les Caves du Louvre were the royal cellar for the palace of le Louvre, beginning of the 18' century. Nowadays, it is more than 600 square meters of wine museum where you can discover many precisions about French wines (and of course taste some of them!!). Les Caves du Louvre are not accessible to people in wheelchairs because the Caves are a 9 meters depth cellar. Les Caves du Louvre team wish you the best for the future!

A great way to spend an hour
Jan. 2020
A group of four of us went on the tasting tour a couple of weeks ago and had the place to ourselves. The host was extremely helpful and informative, and there were plenty of free samples to enjoy.

I order some wine from their shop as well and it arrived a couple of weeks later well packed and intact.

If you're looking for an hour or so to kill in Paris then this is definitely worth a visit.

Favorite of Paris
Dec. 2019 • Friends
This was our favorite experience in Paris. The setting of the wine cellar is absolutely beautiful. The hosts were very knowledgeable. The only reason I rated a 4 instead of a 5 was due to the amount of wine tasted. I would have liked to taste a couple more. Overall, it was a super fun experience... particularly the smell test room!

Dear M1586VDemilyl, Les Caves du Louvre Team thanks you for this positive review! Indeed, les Caves du Louvre is a unique and historical place in the center of Paris, nowadays converted into a Sensory Wine Museum (that's why the Smell Testing Room!!). With a visit, you enjoy a 3-French-wine-tasting in order to discover a facet of the French wines. And if you want to taste more wines, it is possible in our Wine Bar with the help of a professional French sommelier ;) We wish you all the best in your future! Les Caves du Louvre Team.

Best wine cave experience ever!
Oct. 2019
We selected the self-guided tour that includes a bottle of wine to go. The wine cave is deep, steep stairs (no elevator) and mysterious. Lots to see and the educational aspect is thorough - from the soils to all of the wine regions in France. Staff was fun too...I mentioned being from near Stag’s Leap (read circa 1976) CA and did not get tossed out, lucky me!! :)
