Created in 1972, the Brotte Wine Museum was entirely restructured in 2000 in order to respond to the new wishes of its visitors: to learn and and do research. Jacques Fanet, adjunct director of the Institut National des Appellations d'Origine, took up the task of developing this concept.

Le Musée du Vin - AOC Côtes du Rhône

Today, the essentials focus on the history and the discussion of the "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée" (guarantee of the wines' origins): how it started, its definition, its implementation.

Foudre et Pressoir - Le Musée du Vin
The public can then, at its leisure, do research on the land, the grape varieties, and the work of Man, the three fundamental elements that play a part in the appellation system.
In addition, a rare treasure trove of old tools used in the working of the vines and in wine-making is presented, including some very special pieces, such as a 14th century 4,000 litre chestnut wine barrel and a 16th century wine press entirely in wood.

Your trip in this world of culture, tradition and savoir-faire finishes in the wine-tasting hall and wine cellar.

The Museum and Wine Cellar cover two floors, with a total surface area of 500 m². All rooms are air-conditioned.
