The ancient cellars of Château Moncontour are home to a real treasure!
Come and discover a unique collection of tools and objects associated with our heritage, vineyard culture and wine making. Pruning knives, ploughs, barrel toasters, camphor stone, crushing and pressing machines... the world of vineyards and wine will reveal all of its mysteries!

Almost 3,000 carefully preserved and lovingly collected items are on display, and are presented in educational and interesting way in a troglodyte cave.
