We enjoyed exploring the underground wine caves. The guide provided a fantastic tour with many delightful pieces of information. The highlight was the sparkling wine tasting and some interestiing facts about sparkling wine. Bought wine to bring back.

We turned up with friends from the U.K. at the last minute. A fabulous guide (called Jeanne) showed us around the magnificent underground caves and wine making facilities. Very interesting, great humour and thoroughly enjoyable. We have visited many times, this particular visit was excellent.
