3.7
#6 of 22 in Things to do in Chinon
Entertaining, fun, and not for the faint of heart, Le Musee anime du Vin et de la Tonnellerie is a spirited restaurant that presents animated depictions of winemaking and cooking with an eclectic sense of humor. The eccentric and wise-cracking staff add to the offbeat ambience.

Under the vaulted ceiling in the 15th century cellar, you'll find surprising collections, including antique wine barrels, cooking utensils, and animated wax figures illustrating the secrets of winemaking. Bakers bake all of the signature cakes and fouées in a wood-burning oven, and chefs create tantalizing medieval culinary favorites for you to try, including goose rillettes and escargot butter.

    It is above all a restaurant that serves one of the oldest culinary tradition of Touraine, the fouées! Buns baked to put and filled with rillettes, white beans, goat cheese and jam. Host David the bakery offers a unique at will with the wine menu. A great moment of conviviality!

    Museum on the work of the winemakers and Coopers of yesteryear, animated cartoon characters and explanations on these trades a century ago and more. To do with the kids.

    Do not rely on behalf of the restaurant and preferred owner "Dede the bakery" which is indicative of the atmosphere of the place! Don't miss if you go to Chinon: a tariff and a single menu € 20, the foues (local buns) and wine at will!
