  Ethnology Fine arts History
The collections of the Burgundy Wine Museum evoke the history of the vine from Antiquity until the 20th century. The winegrower's work is shown, thanks to the work of Georges-Henri Rivière, in which man is always at the centre.
The visit ends with the "Ambassadors' Room". It takes its name from a fraternity, which after the war sought to publicise the wine of Burgundy further. It is decorated with a tapestry by Lurçat, ordered for the place in 1947.
The fermenting room, whose structure goes back to the 14th century, houses a large number of presses from the 16th to 19th century.
