Musée du vignoble nantais
All the stages of the maturation of the plant and the wine making process

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.
