Ackerman, the very first Loire Valley sparkling wine house
A visit combining history and heritage, but also art and education.
At the house’s historic site, find yourself on a guided tour at the center of unique and monumental tuffeau stone caves. Relive the saga of Jean-Baptiste Ackerman, the founder of the house bearing the same name. He was a forerunner in the production of refined sparkling wines Saumur according to the méthode traditionnelle, a procedure that you will learn all about during this visit. Afterwards, you will then be offered the opportunity of admiring the artistic installations created especially for our majestic troglodyte galleries as part of the Ackerman-Fontevraud artistic residency. Let the festive season weave its magic with this art exhibition before a commented tasting of a selection of three wines.
