About

We couldn't drink wine without them yet little is known about them... The Amis de Bacchus and other keen enthusiasts of traditional trades, come and step over the threshold of this unique museum devoted entirely to coopergae and coopers. Through a vivid reconstruction of the cooperage community, you will discover the various aspects of the trade through an impressive collection of old tools, photos and archive documents... There is also a wine press, barrels and decanting equipment on display in a reconstructed wine cellar. In the museum courtyard next to a small garden of aromatic plants, a small, 19th century, winegrower's farmhouse will enable you to experience a local dwelling and regional activity.
