You don't need to pre book and we just turned up one lunch time. It is a family run winery and really nice to meet a member of the family - the passion is much more obvious. Really informative about the wines and the area....More

Easy spot to try right near Chenonceaux. Nice, short tour and 5 wine tasting. Small fee 3 - euro, or free if wine purchased. We bought 3 bottles. Rosé very refreshing. Also had some Chenonceaux specific white and red. Definitely worth the trip.

We had an excellent, relaxed tasting at this family winery. Wonderful range of reds, whites, and rosés. We loved tasting new-to-us varietals and old favorites like Sauvignon. No appointment needed, friendly and unpretentious.
