I'm not sure what you could do to improve this museum. It has all the facts I'd want but it is a little dry. I would add that if you are really into your wine, and why wouldn't you be if you in Bordeaux!, then the wines in the tasting are a little cheap. So maybe I'd have offered (for... More

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. The highlight of my trip was the included wine tasting at the end. The staff were lovely and went the extra mile to make sure you understood everything... More

We toured this small museum with one of its founders and developed a better understanding of how the region created such a successful industry based on a limited variety of grapes.

It's a small museum tucked away in a side street but so worth the visit! It cost us 6 euros each and is in an old typical wine maker's cellar. I didn't know much about wine when I got there but it's packed with information and left a lot more clued up! It explains the history of Bordeaux and how/why... More

You learned a bit of history, watch a bit of video, and a very little wine tasting at the end. Didn't excite me at all, but then it's only €7, can't expect much of that.

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.
