La Closerie Saint Martin

Wine Cellar

A very special experience awaits you when you decide to book dinner at our Bed & Breakfast: a visit to our unique wine cellar where we offer you a pre-dinner drink.

The entrance to the cellar is hewn directly into the local limestone and is romantically illuminated by candles. Half way down you will encounter a subterranian bread baking oven. The vaulted celler itself has a constant year round temperature of 9 - 13 degrees Celcius and is the perfect place to store and mature our stock of several hundred bottles of wine.

We are also happy to give you a working demonstration of our well which decends from the courtyard through the cellar right down into the ground water.

Let yourself be enchanted by the medieval athmosphere and enjoy a glas of local sparkling Saumur wine with us.



We live right in the middle of a wine gowing area. Discover Chinon AOC wine, the red variety being Cabernet Franc, the white grapes harvested are Chenin Blanc. Furthermore the winegrowing areas of Touraine, Bourgeuil, Vouvray, Montlouis and Saumur enhance the offering with some of France's best sparkling wines only surpassed by those of the Champagne.

Take a tour through the cellars, taste some wine and let the wine growers tell you everything about thier wines and "terroir". In autum there are also several festivals centered around the theme of wines.

We are happy to help you arrange one or several visits for a wine tasting
