If you like wine, this is the perfect place to start your journey through Bordeaux wines. From 2.5 to 6 euro you can find delicious wines that you can taste with cheese and meat. Simple formula, prefect result.

It is like a wine centre, not cosy like a bar but beautiful stain glass windows inside, lovely bar, perfect place for a glass of good quality wine and a plate of cheese. Not many places where you can do just that!

We came here on multiple recommendations and weren't disappointed. The first time, we came only half an hour before closing and it was quiet but welcoming; the second, at 7.30pm on a Thursday and it was less so! The place looks - not posh exactly, but certainly very nice. However, they're not pretentious and raised no eyebrows at an idiot... More

This is a great way to sample the wines of Bordeaux. The building itself is very interesting from the outside and completely renovated inside with attractive décor and comfortable seating. A good choice of wines at very reasonable prices - from 2 to 8 euros a glass - and I mean a glass, not a small tasting. Very good selection... More

We stopped by for a quick snack and a tasting on Tripadvisor's suggestion and loved it. Selection of local wines is extensive and meat and cheese plates complement the wines perfectly. They serve full or half glasses and suggest the order of tastings to make sure your palate makes the best of your selections. Highly recommended.

We did not expect the prices on the wine list, which were some of the most reasonable in the whole city. The wine list is, obviously, vast. The sommeliers were knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful. We lucked out and got the last table available, but, make sure you get there at an "off-hour" because by the time we left there was... More

Maison du Vin, now called Bar a Vin: the opportunity to try several different wines over two days was not lost on us! There are thirty wines by the glass at €2.50 to €8. To accompany these there are several platters of meats and cheese to choose from at around €8. The wines were excellent and the platters good. A... More

This bar serves great quality wine at very very reasonable prices. The building is beautiful too and the tables outside are great for people watching. A must visit, especially if you call at the tourist office across the road.

We were recommended to visit Maison du Vin by a couple we met on a river cruise and were so pleased we went! Just off Place Quiconces, and opposite the Office du Tourisme, this beautiful building holds a fantastic value bar offering you the chance to taste a wide variety of local wines by the glass. Best of all -... More

believe it or not it literally means means "house of wine" so as you can imagine its house entirely constructed of "wine". Does what it says on the tin really. Get up there now I would. 4 stars.
