You can visit ‘La Tour du Pouilly-Fumé’ unique and high-quality oeno-tourist center, even more interesting since the coming of the Aroma’s cellar: ten glass bubbles open to your nose introducing the Pouilly-Fumés and Pouilly-sur-Loire’s aromatic families. Every single bubble is made up only with natural products; it is beautiful and it smells good!
