Cave exploration, wine-tasting

Accompanied by a specialised caver and a wine expert, explore Grotte Saint Marcel’s passageways, then take a pause for a while, unwind and in total darkness enjoy some of Ardèche’s typical wines : Côtes du RhôneCôtes du Rhône Villages and Côtes du Rhône Villages Saint-Andéol

Pre-booking required. Minimum of 6 participants.
Please note, Grotte Saint Marcel reserves the right to cancel the activity if the minimum number of participants is not reached. In that case, an alternative date will be offered (the bank transfer will be effective only after confirmation of departure).
