A variety of museums offer a visitor to the region the opportunity to learn more about former wine making methods. The brand new Cité du Vin of Bordeaux is already emerging as a unique place with multiple sensorial experiences. Moreover, the Cité du Vin is in Bordeaux, the capital city of wine where you can explore the alley to discover some surprises. The Ecomusée in Gradignan displays the tools used in the vineyards between 1850 and 1950, whilst a visit to Château Lynch Bages includes a tour of the well preserved old wine making facilities.
Some focus on specific aspects of production, such as barrel making at the Nadalié cooperage or the wine labels by famous artists at Château Mouton Rotschild, while the museum in the historic Chartrons district of the city tells the story of the wine merchants and their trade.
