A great place to stop for a light lunch and taste the wines of well regarded estate Charles Joguet. We enjoyed a private tasting in English before enjoying a selection of charcuterie and cheeses accompanied by a bottle of Les Charles 2014 that was tasting excellent. We've been here several times and always receive a warm welcome. Being open on a Sunday is great too as most wineries are shut and this gives you the chance to taste and have lunch.

We stopped by on a rainy weekday afternoon to sample some wines. They offer free tastes! Loved everything and bought four bottles. Great place to sample some Chinon wines.

Cave des Silenes is a lovely place to stop for a glass of wine and a simple meal on your way to the Chinon castle. Food is delicious (cheese or charcuterie platters, salads and a very appetizing cafe gourmand!) and you can try an interesting range of beautiful Chinon wines. Don't forget to inquire about the "cave de tuffeau" tour (cave dug in the lical stone), it is one of the most beautiful cave I have ever seen.

Beautiful surroundings, welcoming interior and a good stock of Chinon wines of Joguet plus a wider variety from around the Loire. We had a brilliant tutored tasting with terroir varieties covered including sandy, clay and gravel soils all producing different wines from a single vintage. Not the cheapest Chinon wines but possibly the best!
