The vaulted cellars built in 1720 depict the work of the coopers and the traditional wine aging practices of traders in the nineteenth century. The cellars also illustrate the Bordeaux wine trade with a number of collections that take you beyond the two seas. The spirit of Chartrons and the Bordeaux wine trade are captured with the sophisticated architectural style of the 18th century. Various artifacts and archival documents trace the exceptional careers of the great merchant families as well as the ancestral knowledge of workers in the cellars.

  • Нам очень понравился музей. Редкий случай - нам дали описание экскурсии на русском, причём в грамотном и подробном переводе. Также понравилась дегустация и рассказ о винах региона Бордо.

  • This is a self guided tour which works well considering the amount of detail provided. If you choose to take your time and really read and watch the videos provided, there is a lot of good and interesting information about the region and its history. And, of course, there is a bit of wine once you've finished!

  • Not a tour...we were given a book and told to look around. Did have some good wines for sale. They seemed more interestex in selling wines.
