interesting but not very exciting

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

Seriously, I was very surprised to pay 10 euros for such a small museum with so little and disorganised information. There is absolutely nobody guiding you around, you get a little booklet with a very boring long text that is in fact difficult to follow. The wines we tasted were horrible (but I guess everyone has a different taste so... More
