The museum is dedicated to the history and art of wine. It is located in the Chartrons quarter, which was the traditional center of wine merchants.

The building of the museum is an 18th century manor house with the old cellars restored. There are displayed objects used for the cultivation of grapes and the preparation of wine from the old times. Some of them are actually very old.

If you would like to you can also taste special local wines and have a guidance session, although the ticket is a little more expensive this way. But it worth it, it's really good feeling to taste French wine in the cellar of a wine museum and with guidance. :)

Address:
Bordeaux, France

Price:
7 Euros with wine tasting
5 Euros without the tasting

Opening Hours:
Every day from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
