Exhibits and artifacts dating back to the Middle Ages - plus you get to taste the goods at the end!
An excellent look at the nature and history of Bordeaux' iconic wine industry.
Given the importance of wine to the regional culture and economy, this museum opened in 2008 by the Bordeaux Historia Vini association is located in the cellars of the Royal Corridor of Louis XV on Rue Borie. Its unique collection of exhibits and artifacts relates to winemaking and the wine industry since the Middle Ages, the great winemaking dynasties of the 18th and 19th centuries, the new players that came on the scene in the 20th, and details about fascinating episodes of history such as the use of slave labour in the port. Your visit will conclude, you'll be pleased to know, with a tasting.
