  • Amboise: Caves Duhard Visit and Wine Tasting

    1. Amboise: Caves Duhard Visit and Wine Tasting

    Discover the original wines and matured vintages on offer at the house Duhard, founded in 1874. Visit their 16th-century troglodyte caves facing the Loire near the historical center of Amboise and enjoy a wine tour experience in 2 parts. First, awaken and stimulate your 5 senses and learn more about wine on the Sensorial tour. Then, travel through 150 years of wine history on the Vintages Odyssey tour of the Duhard Caves wine collection. Follow your tour with a tasting of 3 wines with a sommelier, with an optional food and wine pairing also available. After, enjoy the delicatessen boutique and purchase wines with shipping available worldwide. Tours in English take place at 12 PM, 2 PM, and 4 PM. Tours in French take place at 11 AM, 3 PM, and 5 PM.

    What a brilliant tour, we knew nothing about wines and learned so much that now we can appreciate the good "stuff". Our guide was the winery owner and he was great, he had a wonderful sense of humour and was so enthusiastic about his wines and taught us a lot. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone if you want to learn about wines or even if you know a lot about them as the tasting part was fantastic.

    The tour was very well organised and a most interesting experience. We were picked up on time from the Loire Tourist Office in Tour, and taken on a picturesque drive to our first stop at the Alain Robert vineyards. We were met there by the wife of the owner who gave us an interesting insight into the growing and harvesting cycle. We then went up to the higher vineyards and sampled Vouvray wines in the beautiful countryside; wonderful! Next we went on to see the bottling process.

Get Your Guide provides an excellent one day experience

Our experience on this one day tour of the Chateau region was outstanding. A little pricey as tours go, The guide that took us out for the day, Vincent, was excellent. Our group was English language and Vincent, who grew up in the region, was able to communicate very well and answer our many questions. He was an example of someone who takes his job seriously and has done much studying about French history as it relates to the Castles. This made our experience very interesting and Informative. He has a great personality and knows how to make the day enjoyable. This tour also included a wonderful hot luncheon meal at a local cafe! I highly recommend France Intense and Get your Guide.

What a brilliant tour, we knew nothing about wines and learned so much that now we can appreciate the good "stuff".

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone if you want to learn about wines or even if you know a lot about them as the tasting part was fantastic.

The pick up point was in a convenient location to the train and left on time as the day was carefully scheduled to include two major chateaux, lunch and a wine tasting. Our guide, Nicholas, was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Everything went very smoothly and enjoyably.

We appreciated the experience of our tour guide Martine. Our tour to Chenonceau, Chambord, & lunch and wine tasting were delightful!

Marina was our guide and she was wonderful! So full of knowledge and very pleasant. Highly recommend.
