We stayed nearby this museum, so we took the opportunity for a visit. The 10€ entrance fee seemed a bit expensive, but it was worth the money. The museum is not big, it is actually 3 rooms in the cellar where wine was stored in the old days. The displays gave a good understanding how it all started up until... More

The visit of the museum was greatly pleasurable. The displays and their information were very informative. If you read them properly and take them in a tour will last about 45 minutes.

This place is a bit of a walk but worth it. You get a very good insight into the regions wine history (isn't that why we all come to Bordeaux?) and a small tasting at the end. Took us about 45 minutes for the tour and tasting plus walking time.
