Epicurean Tour

Epicurean visits


A unique discovery of the treasures of the Ardèche

The Grotte Saint Marcel, Cave Naturelle des Gorges de l'Ardèche®, is an exceptional place for preserving wine, but also for tasting it.
The Epicurean Visit is an original sensory activity, in an atypical environment at the heart of the Grotte Saint-Marcel d'Ardèche: the "Painters' Gallery".
Accompanied by a specialist in oenology, visitors taste a white and a red wine and create a food/wine pairing based on local Ardèche produce. This one-hour tasting concludes the guided tour of the Grotte Saint-Marcel, which lasts around 1 hour (in the fitted-out section).

Must be over 18 (children not allowed).
Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health.

Reservations required. Departure from 6 people. Private hire available on request. 
An original activity to offer for parties, birthdays, stag or hen parties... You'll create unforgettable moments!
The Epicurean Tour is available for private hire, at a price to suit your requirements. 
Please note that the Grotte Saint-Marcel reserves the right to cancel the tour if the minimum number of 6 people is not reached. In this case, you will be offered a deferred date (€1 bank transfer until departure confirmation).
