  • The caves are worth a look and the wine tasting was pretty good. It is directly under a portion of the castle and easily accessible in town just a short walk up rue Haut St Maurice. We arrived...

  • Great visit here today! Went on the recommendation of a friend and glad we did. The wine is excellent, and well priced. We showed up with our 4 young (and very energetic) boys and had a lovely, informative tasting. I learned a lot about the region and my preferences (which surprised me).
  • Date of visit - August 30th 2021. 11:30am. First of all - the positives: The place was beautiful. The wine was good. Now for the visit: We visited a few wine caves and vineyards during our stay in Chinon. Plouzeau was by far the least enjoyable. We were met.... No, tolerated, by a less than interested member of staff. From the moment we entered the cave we felt like an inconvenience. She was most rude. We bought a lot of wine that day. But not from Plouzeau. Sure, we bought a few bottles because the wine was good. But we would have bought much more if we were engaged with. Every tasting we asked for was like getting blood from a stone. Some we asked to try and were just ignored. The lady couldn't get back to her computer fast enough. We can speak enough French to get by and were with a French native - so language barrier definitely wasn't an issue. All I can think is that either the lady working that day was having a really bad day..... Or, she really was just incredibly rude. Won't go again. All the others we visited were welcoming, engaging, informative and a pleasure to buy from.
  • Cool (literally) tasting room in an actual cave...whites, rose, reds, bubbly...English spoken.
  • So french original experience! Like it very much! Wines dégustation in the middle of historical winery just underneath the fortress!! Bottles are affordable. Must do!
  • Picturesque cave at the end of the historic town. Small but one would get the experience of a cave setting at no cost. Wine tasting available but when busy the so called wine connoisseurs take over so push in and enjoy.
