Amazing and interactive museum that even if you aren't in love with Sancerre wine like I am you will enjoy. My husband often accompanies me to galleries and museums rather begrudgingly but he loved it here. So wonderfully curated and enjoyed!!

The House of Sancerre provides much information concerning the grapes, varying qualities of the soil, the wines and their production. The house of wines also offers tastings as well as associated products and... More

Interactive, fun activities including a short 4D show where you follow the wine making process from inside a grape, virtually. Beautiful garden where you can touch the plants, finishing with a small glass of Sancerre on a lovely terrace with a view of the valley.

We had been to this place twice before but this time it was the best visit. There was a 4D cinema, interactive room, big cave and a simulator( which kept our daughter occupied for 20 minutes. The garden overlooking the valley with information boards was stunning. The visit finished off with a glass of Sancerre!

This has plenty to keep the kids amused. There is a fantastic 4D experience, a simulator tractor, interactive experiences also. Great fun for all the family and very informative. The complementary glass of wine was fabulous. Staff spoke great English.

This is well worth a visit and we spent an hour or so here. The children loved the 4D movie and the outside garden. I enjoyed learning more about the winemaking process and the glass of wine offered at the end.

We ended up at this museum by hazard, not supposed to visit Sancerre. This museum was a highly positive surprise. Set up in this tiny village of Sancerre, the explications on the wine (origins, process, history) are well described and very well supported by a talk on the area with 3D maquette, 4D movie (don't miss it, you'll be surprised!)...
