If you think museums are boring, sad and dusty old places, be prepared for a surprise. The Museum of the Vignoble de Nantes is bright, clever, colorful, open and overlooking the vineyards. Over 700 exhibits trace the history of the Nantes vineyard. There are games for kids, videos and guided tours!
700 exhibits: From simple grafting machines to the Coyac alembic-still, picking baskets ( portoires), ebulliometers, pumps, corking machines, glasses and other objects related to wine growing and tasting.
The collection covers the full process from vine to wine. Our most treasured exhibits include the first straddle tractor, an équarteur's cabin, a Dujardin-Salleron ebulliometer, a majestic long barrel and a complete collection of wine presses.
