Know More about this tour

In the building of the royal broker Louis XV, discover three centuries of history and prestige of the ‘grands vins de Bordeaux’. 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.

    A self tour, no need for a guide, but fascinating. Since Bordeaux is probably the best known wine region for anyone, it was good to see some of the early inventions that helped promote the industry as well as the manner of development.

    Relatively small museum. Self guided with english notes. It includes 2 wine tasting. It would have been better if the museum is interactive.

    A lovely little museum which the four of us enjoyed. It is very interesting, well laid out with the information in several languages. The staff were excellent and picked up on the fact that we’d paid twice and gave us our money back. ( I hadn’t realised my husband had paid in advance and paid when we went in.) the tasting at the end was informative and friendly though not always easy to understand if other people were talking in the shop behind us. It’s worth a visit especially on a first visit to Bordeaux as it explains the history very well.

    The Musée du Vin was charming, intimate, immensely interesting and laid out in a traditional way; a complete contrast to the futuristic Cité du Vin. The visit (which incidentally was half the price of the Cité du Vin) also included a wine tasting. However this time we were given a proper talk lasting half an hour explaining the basics of the wines of Bordeaux and giving us two glasses to sample - unlike the previous day at Cité du Vin where we were offered a selection of world wide wines to choose from and sent away with our glass with the most basic description which you could read off the bottle label. There is of course a difference in that the modern museum is about the history of wine, and world wines in general - very general. And the traditional museum concentrates on Bordeaux wines and history. The Musée du Vin was by far the best experience of the two for me and if you only have time for one of these museums Musée du Vin is the one to visit.

    Great find in Bordeaux. Not your typical museum. Lots of information about the history of the wine trade in Bordeaux in a former wine merchant establishment. Well worth visiting for the price. It also includes a wine tasting at the end. I would have given it 5 star review except the person doing the tasting was extremely disinterested and not knowledgeable. There were other staff leading other wine tastings that seemed much more engaging and helpful.

    I enjoyed walking around this museum and the information provided in English was good. (They provided me a separate folder). The videos on barrel and cork making were very interesting. I did not stay for the wine tasting because it did not have time to wait for the next one offered.

    The museum was interesting and informative to look around with the accompanying folder. The wine tasting was great and the person who led it was able to answer lots of questions and give lots of information about the wine produced in Bordeaux as well as the two wines we tasted. The trip lasted a couple of hours and was a great way to spend my last morning in Bordeaux.

    Highly recommended for anyone visiting Bordeaux and Bruna is the best!!! She’s very knowledgeable and patient to answer all the questions. It’s definitely one of the best ways to learn about history of the city and wine.

    This is a short, concise history of how wine made the city of the Bordeaux and the region. As long or short as you want with 2 wine tasting. Nice, friendly, informative.
