Full description

Pre-book your entry ticket to Bordeaux’s Wine and Trade Museum and enjoy the added perks of a presentation of the vineyard and a wine tasting of two wines paired with local snacks. Receive a paper guidebook for your self-guided exploration of the cellars.

The Bordeaux Wine and Trade Museum pays tribute to the great wine merchants and the rich winemaking history of Bordeaux. Set in the building of Louis XV's royal broker, you’ll discover three centuries of the history and fame of Bordeaux’s great wines.

The vaulted cellars, built around 1720, retrace the work of the coopers and the maturing of wine in barrels in the tradition of the wine merchants of the 19th century. With an included paper guide, you’ll get to go on a self-guided walk through two cellars.

At the end of your visit, you can attend a presentation on the Bordeaux vineyards and learn about the notions of grape varieties, appellations d'origine contrôlée, terroir, and more.

Alongside your commented wine tasting with in-house selected local wines, you can taste raisins dorés (coated raisins) and canelés de Bordeaux (small French pastry flavored with rum). Before the end of your visit, you can savor more of the wines in the wine cellar (costs not included).

We’ve thought that this is a guided tour but in reality you just can have a look at the exhibition on your own - staff gave us a used paper booklet and that’s it. The exhibition in the cellar is very nice but we are disappointed that was not guided tour. The wine tasting was so-so, the lady explained the wine region in English in 5 mins and gave us two wines to taste, we did not like the wines much. Overall was nice experience of course if we want more details and much quality wines we should go to the chateaux directly. We got directions from the staff so next time we will go to special place.

The museum was very well preserved and contains a lot of interesting information, also in English.
