Musée animé du Vin et de la Tonnellerie, Chinon

3.7
Entertaining, fun, and not for the faint of heart, Musée animé 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.

  • If you want to learn how to do the drums and tourangelle life in the 14th century, a visit to this small museum is, for a sum low (4.50) with a free tasting of Chinon so don't hesitate. Enjoy your visit

  • Very good tasting of fouées embellished with caustic humour of Dede. Recommend +++ Sires sad refrain.

  • Great restaurant for usability. The formula is pretty effective: menu / fouées + Pate and butter has the garlic... Drinking! In short it is simple but good... and then anyway Let's go for dede so the rest!

  • Food was amazing despite being a set menu, staff very friendly and helpful,

  • 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!
