Good selection of local wines, especially from Chinon, but also from further afield in Touraine, including some from Jean-François Mérieau. There is a focus on wines produced in a environmentally-friendly or even 'natural' way and the owner is happy to advise. There are usually half a dozen wines available to drink by the glass with light snacks on tables provided inside or out on the terrace.

Useful information: Open every day 10.00-21.00 during April - October. The rest of the year closed Mondays.
