All wine producing stages from cultivating to bottling
With its contemporary architecture, this museum devoted to Nantes’ vineyards was designed by architect Jean-Claude Pondevie. Located in a botanical conservatory protecting different grape varieties, visitors are invited to discover a territory with strong identity, and a surprising collection as impressive as it is unusual.
Whether it’s the trumped-up cane of a wine broker (who didn’t actually like wine…), a still that produces an 80% strong eau-de-vie, a massive wine press dating back to 1848, or a rocket that protects crops against hail, the ingeniousness of the men and women working in Nantes’ vineyards is on display at this museum.
