Lots of explanation on well laid out boards. Clips (with sub-titles) of people talking about different aspects of Sancerre and its wine business (and seats whilst you listen). Good view from the terrace.

A very nice introduction to wine making in the Sancerre area. The museum is well laid out and has some interesting exhibits. The filmed interviews with the locals about past harvests are fascinating.

Beautifully presented and refurbished establishment. All you could want to know about wine in Sancere. A bit expensive though.
