Ackerman, Saumur

#2 of 36 in Wineries in Pays de la Loire
Ackerman sparkling wines are a labor of love dating back to the 19th century, when Jean-Baptiste Ackerman explored the Loire Valley in hopes of discovering the secret of champagne. Using family money Ackerman bought some of the best aging galleries. You will tour these impressive tuffeau limestone galleries, where the Ackerman labels are aging and taste the crisp, fruity wine that instantly made the Flemish wine lover a well-known, if not French, name.

  • I love this Caves, if you like the wine and buy a few bottles is effectively free to for the cellars which are great fun for the family. Am awesome selection of old pub-style games at the end where u can leave the kids while you sample the produce!
  • Very slick operation! The tasting rooms are fabulous and the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Their caves are also spectacular and filled with art exhibits, making it a good self guided walk with ancient games at the end. We have attended a few of their summer concerts on site and they have all been great... albeit sometimes unusual. For me, the only downside is that the production has shifted to another site... the caves are just an exhibit.
