In France, more than two thousand years of expertise has led to the development of world-famous wines. This museum testifies to the richness and diversity of the French craft of winemaking, through an exposure to tools and objects used to work the grapevine and wine. The collection is showed in an old setting from the Middle Ages and arranged later in storerooms by the Tiny Brothers of the Convent of Passy. An expansive collection of more than 2,000 pieces is presented on the tools of viticulture, winemaking and wine tasting. The oldest of them date back a century before Jesus Christ and the most recent to the 19th century. Wax figures, such as Napoléon, Pasteur, or Balzac, depict objects in the collection. The Musée du Vin offers visitors the opportunity to recognize or discover traditional winemaking tools which are now part of French heritage.
