Self-guided tour



approx. 1h30


The museum at your own pace

From Antiquity to the 20th Century, discover the evolution of the city of Bordeaux and of its commercial port open to the world. Follow the footsteps of the merchant families who settled in the Chartrons district and played a major part in the prosperity of the Bordeaux vineyard, making it an essential world reference.

Through objects and documents from that period, the permanent collection of the Musée du Vin et du Négoce teaches you about the evolution of different techniques and tools related to wine: barrel ageing, the evolution of bottles, labels and the fashions that followed.

At the end of your visit, one of the wine tourism mediators will accompany you with an explanation of the Bordeaux vineyard and its appellation system during a commented tasting of two wines.

Did you know ?

François Mauriac was the owner of the Domaine de Malagar.

He had inherited this wine estate from his ancestors. He called himself a “country owner”.

He liked to stay in Malagar in the summer and remained there until the end of the harvest. From the terrace of Malagar he admired “the most beautiful landscape in the world”. His office was located near the winery where they produced “a nice white wine that was not too sweet, perfect for foie gras”.

François Mauriac, 1885 – 1970

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.
