This spectacular visit will allow you to unlock the secrets of Jean-Baptiste Ackerman, the pioneer of fine Loire bubbles, and to understand the method of producing Saumur fine bubble wines.

Guided tour of our troglodyte cellars, historic site of Maison Ackerman. During your stroll through our tuffeau cellars, you will be told about two centuries of creating fine bubbles. Thanks to the exceptional presence of a historian, you will uncover all the secrets of the history of the House and its historic vintage, the Royal range. Then you will admire the artistic installations created specifically for our majestic troglodyte galleries as part of the Ackerman-Fontevraud artistic residency. At the end of the visit, our ambassador will offer you a tasting of a selection of the House's vintages.

A tasting of sparkling grape juice (without alcohol) is offered to children.

Guided tour possible only in JULY AND AUGUST

About the host

Founded in 1811, Ackerman – the oldest fine sparkling wine house in the Loire – specializes in the production of the Saumur and Crémant de Loire appellations, according to the traditional method. Combining tradition and innovation, its blends with an expressive and aromatic style, offer you great gastronomic cuvées as well as daring cuvées, for all your tasting moments.
A sensory promise dear to our founder Jean-Baptiste Ackerman “Bubbles are ephemeral, emotion is eternal”.

Embark on a journey to the heart of a fascinating world between tradition and innovation, education and leisure. This oenological circuit is punctuated by events, tastings and exhibitions with a dynamic scenography, a festival of lights and a universe of bewitching aromas.

With friends or family, come visit the Ackerman cellars and participate in the many events on the theme of wine and gastronomy, which take place there throughout the year.
