Initiation workshop

Min. 5 people 25€/pers.


Tasting of 4 wines

The fundamentals to get started

Challenge your senses in this workshop for all those who want to be initiated to the art of wine tasting. Learn to recognise the clues hidden in the colour, nose and sensations of the wine in a friendly and fun way. At the end of this workshop, you will have acquired the necessary tools to participate and express yourself during a tasting.

The Initiation workshop is: a first wine to learn the technique… and 3 others to practice.

An interactive moment for all wine apprentices, and above all a moment of sharing that proves that tasting is not only for the initiated.

Raspberry, blackberry, peach, citrus, vanilla, freshness, acidity, silkiness, roundness …: Awaken your senses and discover the taster in you!

A one-hour experience illustrated by four Bordeaux wines from our selection and led by a professional from our team.

Did you know ?

In 1970 Pierre Delanoë wrote a song for Joe Dassin called Billy le bordelais.

It celebrates the benefits of Bordeaux wines, especially Saint-Emilion. Joe Dassin was inducted into the brotherhood of Les Compagnons de Bordeaux.

An extract:
” Because good Saint Emilion wine gives you the heart of a lion!
Prince, Duke or Marquis
Or Monsieur de Bordeaux
Your blood is made of wine
Much more than it is of water .

Joe Dassin, 1938 – 1980

Experiência sensorial Não visitamos o museu, preferimos a experiência sensorial e adoramos. A experiência oferece passar pelas quatro estações do ano, e para cada uma delas há um vinho diferente para degustar. Para quem não bebe álcool, há a opção de bebidas sem ele.

Mildly interesting Small old-fashioned museum with a gift shop. A useful explanation of the wine growing area and a sampling of two wines given by a member of staff at the end. Not worth the ten euros we paid, but it only costs five euros with a Bordeaux City Pass.

A nice introduction to wine in a well done interactive museum We are not wine connoisseurs but our party of 4 thought that the museum provided an innovative and interactive way to learn about wine and the history of wine in Bordeaux. The tasting bar is on the top floor and provides a lovely view of the city. We enjoyed our visit.

Lots of information about wine This was so informative. The museum is interesting. We learned so much from Deymi during the talk after. You taste different wines combined with some other things as well to enhance the tasting experience. Highly recommended! The shop has a well-curated selection of wines and they can tell you about them. An authentic experience.

Bezoek deze zeker! Klein in vergelijking met het nieuwe museum, maar daardoor ook veel persoonlijker en gericht op de wijn historie van Bordeaux en Ommelanden. Beide musea zijn aan te bevelen, maar deze moet je zeker niet overslaan, alleen de proeverij is al erg leuk, waar die bij de grote nogal onpersoonlijk is.

История Бордо вина. Хорошее место, пропитанное историей виноделия. Нет аудио гида, читать по инструкции не удобно.Дегустация вина очень хорошая.

Excelente museo! Las exhibiciones son excelentes y los espacios muy agradables. Atentos con la degustación de una copa de vino, que incluye el costo de la entrada, tendrás que hacer una fila para tomar un ascensor, otra fila para recibir la copa y otra fila para bajar.

Must go place in Bordeaux. It was amazing, the place is full of interesting information about the history of wine business in Bordeaux and about the history of wine itself . The tasting was very nice and the staff was very kind and friendly, for sure they made my experience so much better, the woman who led the tasting showed a lot of knowledge about the subject and brought several curiosities about the wine (10 out of 10). Also they have a good store with interesting items.
