Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Atmosphere potluck, we are welcomed by the guests in an authentic restaurant! The fouées (traditional bread) in abundance served with good products in accompaniment. Soaring to dessert pie, we enjoy. And all this watered wine region!
