If you are ready for independent voyages around the birthplace of wine, start with the very-most – with the great wines and chateau of the Left Bank of Bordeaux (Bordeaux). This is the main point in the mandatory program of wine tourism. The best in the world, great wines are born here, in five chateaux , of which we have repeatedly written in our blog. And the most famous of them is Chateau Mouton-Rothschild .
Tour of the Muton-Rothschild chateau is one of the most amazing in the world. In addition to the usual excursions through the vineyards and wine tastings, a wine tourism lover will see here what is not found in any other winemaking industry.
Museum “Wine in art”
The owners of the chateau opened an unusual museum in their estate – “Wine in Art” . Not a museum of wine art , which is a lot – about setting up a press for squeezing grapes or inventing a wine barrel, namely the Museum of Wine in Art , where exhibits are samples of real high art – paintings, sculptures, tapestries, in which the theme of wine and winemaking . Thanks to its Museum, the Muton-Rothschild Chateau has for many years been the leader in the ranking of the most visited wine tourism facilities. The tourist has something to see, except the vine. He can see the same vine in the pictures of the great masters of the past and the present.
Wine labels for Chateau Mouton Rothschild
And one of the museum’s expositions is simply unique. The exposition of wine labels Chateau Mouton Rothschild – the most famous and one of the most expensive wines in the world. Even in the forties of the twentieth century, the owners of the chateau came up with a precedent-free project – they began to attract to the creation of wine labels not ordinary designers, but real, large, even – world-famous artists of their time. And they laid the foundation for the artistic marathon, which lasts to this day – for almost 70 years.
The exposition of wine labels – by the authorship of Dali and Picasso , Marc Chagall and Wassily Kandinsky, Andy Warhol and Ilya Kabakov – travels from time to time around the world, and in the early 2000s we had a ball in Russia.
