The Museum

Our history

The Bordeaux Historia Vini association was created in November 2007 with the purpose of enhancing the heritage and the very special past of the Chartrons district by working on a project for a museum dedicated to wine and its trade.

Combining the tradition and the future, the museum aims to be a meeting place of conviviality around wine current affairs thanks to its strong links with the Bordeaux wine producers.

“Passionate about my city and its wine, I wanted to tell the story of a trade that has shaped Bordeaux for centuries and to combine a mythical place with a moment of relaxation and cultural enrichment.”

Grégory Pecastaing, President and Founder of the Museum.

The location

The Chartrons: iconic district of the Port de la Lune, is now the home of the Wine and Trade Museum.

In the building of Louis XV’s royal broker, you will discover three centuries of history and the reputation of the great wines of Bordeaux.

The imposing facade, the vaulted cellars and the cooperage remind of the daily life of the wine merchants of the 19th century.

The museum shop is located in the former cooperage and the permanent collection now replaces the barrels in the semi-subterranean cellars.

This collection of documents, rare bottles, films and winemaking equipment brings several centuries of history back to life.

Well Worth the Time! Excellent Historical Review of the Bordeaux Wine Trade. The history information dated back over 500+ years ago. It was a self guided tour with the option of an audio guide with your smart phone or a printed book. You walk through at your own pace and it is easy to go forward or back with the audio version. The museum is located the historical building from the 12th century. Wine tasting was average but very pleasant lady who gave the presentation. Well worth the admission cost.

Charming experience Three of us (as part of a group of ten) visited the Bordeaux Wine and Trade Museum. Mary Chantal Leboucq, who helped found the museum, provided us with a tour. Her commentary was educational, and her wonderful sense of humor made the experience entertaining as well. Mary has loved wine, wine making, and the wine business for a long time. She says her grandfather would claim that she had been born in a wine barrel. After walking through the exhibits, we were treated to an informative wine tasting – again with lots of humor. The tour ended in the museum’s gift shop, with its wines and many wine-related items.

Unmissable Bordeaux place The Wine and Trade Museum is a real gem for wine lovers and history buffs in Bordeaux. This museum is full of valuable information on the history of Bordeaux and its wines, offering a captivating immersion in the region's wine heritage. The wealth of exhibitions and documents presented allows us to better understand the evolution of the wine trade over the centuries. What really sets this experience apart is the argumentative tasting offered at the end of the tour. It’s much more than just a tasting; it is a real sensory lesson which allows you to deepen your knowledge of the different grape varieties, terroirs and winemaking techniques. Each wine tasted is accompanied by detailed explanations which enrich the experience and shed new light on what we are tasting. In short, the Musée du Vin et du Négoce is a must-see for anyone wanting to explore the fascinating history of Bordeaux and its wines, while enjoying a memorable and informative tasting experience.

Wine Museum, Bordeaux It is small but with history. The staff is very attentive and willing to communicate. The girl who did the tasting for us made an effort to be able to explain it in Spanish. We had a small incident at the tasting that they resolved with kindness. Recommended even with minors.

Great experience in Bordeaux This was such a great class. The person who ran it was very knowledgeable about the area and gave many suggestions of what to do in Bordeaux. She made the entire experience very memorable.
