Based on a tip from our B&B host, we visited La Cave Voltaire and tried some wine along with a plate of charcuterie. I understand that the owner is a highly reputed wine expert. But what made the experience special was the conversation we had with him. It started with wine but then extended to tourism trends around Chinon, the... More

Just went in to have a look around, they have a great selection of wines. They have a lot of knowledge on the wines they sell, it also looks like they do a very good selection of light bites (we had just eaten so we didn't have anything to eat).

If you visit Chinon be sure to stop here. We enjoyed a wonderful evening, drinking the most delicious wines (and local beers) with a generous plate of local cheeses and charcuterie. Our host was a wine enthusiast and expert - we could have listened to him tell us about every wine in the shop. Had we stayed longer would have... More

We were very well looked after by the staff who were knowledgable and well spoken in English. We tried some local beers and local cheeses, both of which were fantastic. We also bought some wine to take home, which we very much enjoyed. Great experience all round.

Great wine and food - and a fantastic, skilful expert! The cheese and the charcuterie was of an outstanding quality and the wines have been amazing. The owner speaks English and German fluent and has a huge knowledge about what he is offering. Very good value for money!

The owner is wonderful and extremely knowledgeable, he helped us pick out a few wines and spoke about them extensively as well as explaining the local area and surrounding vineyards. After tasting us on a few bottles we selected one and as we sat drinking it he came to ask us how we liked it and it turned out the... More

One of the highlights of our stay in Chinon, La Cave Voltaire is a great place to stop in the afternoon to sample cheese or charcuterie and good wine. We each ordered the small cheese plate and had an excellent assortment of 9 or 10 quite different cheeses. The owner asked us some questions about the kind of wine we... More
