For the novice, this is a great tour of a old wine storage warehouse cellar in Bordeaux followed by a two wine tasting and explanation of wine tasting and the AOC control system. Very informative as to the entire wine history of the region, and clues about what to go see in the region relative to wine. Museum store sells... More

We were advised by a sommelier at home to be sure and visit here. Very warm welcome and if you are interested in wine, this is a must-do. We went here before doing our wine tours and found it invaluable in understanding how the Bordeaux wine trade works - very different than what we were used to from the U.S.... More

Museum is just outside the city centre down a small lane about 5 minutes walk from the tram. It is set in an old wine cellar. Museum comprises 2 parts, a self guided tour through the old wine storage areas which has a number of interesting artefacts/videos of the wine making trade followed by a wine tasting session of the...

An interesting place if you're interested in wine. There are a lot of bottles to see and lots of text to read followed by sampling of a small amount of wine.

We had the Bordeaux City Card and with that we only had to pay 5 euro to visit the museum. There's a lot of text, both in the guidebook as in the display and it has a bit of a 'dusty' feel, but the information given is great and the wine tasting after the visit was great, good explanations of...

It's housed in what was an Irish négociant's house and tells the story of the wine trade in Bordeaux since the 12th Century. If you're Irish, Scottish, Dutch or English, you'll be very interested in your countrymen's contribution to Bordeaux's wine history. The curation is a bit old-fashioned but the exhibits and videos are worth a look. You're given a... More

Decided to visit after picking up a leaflet. The Museum is down a side street so a little bit off the beaten track. 10 euros gets you entrty to the museum as well as 2 wine tastings. I must say as the wine tasting was the highlight. We had a very knowledgeable member of staff who spoke excellent English and... More

Small exhibit area in the cellar of a warehouse (and, typically, living quarters above, closed to the public). Wine tasting at the end, sips of two inexpensive wines. Not worth the admission cost, BUT I did actually sit down and read the info notebook in English handed to me after I paid, and I did learn enough to make the... More

This museum/exhibition gives interesting background to the bit (Bordeaux) of the wine industry everyone has heard of. There's some very interesting talking heads (French) video of the roles involved in the wine business - growers, traders, brokers etc. You get a written guide (in English if you want) but it's rather longwinded. We tasted 2 wines at the end in... More

This is a small museum, a bit off the beaten track. We took the tram to Chartrons and then walked. We took a self-guided tour, with an English handout to aid in interpretation. Most of the exhibits are quite self explanatory. Apart from the exhibits, the building itself is fascinating as an example of an old wine cellar of a... More
