A Wine village, a journey into the Beaujolais.
The Hameau Dubœuf has around 15 themed rooms which tell the story of over 2000 years of winemaking.
Your tour begins in the Salle des Pas-Perdus; a reconstruction of a grand station concourse of 1900, and takes you through the history and traditions of the Beaujolais and the Mâconnais.
The wine transport room retraces 3500 years of civilisation, from Antiquity to the 20th century.
The museum room shows over 3000 historical artefacts, from winegrowing tools to works of art.
The wine cellars dating from 1855 are still used today in wine making at Dubœuf.
There is a room dedicated to geology and the different grape types of the Beaujolais and the Mâconnais.
Here the animations in the theatre describe the life of a vine throughout the year and the life of Noé, the first winemaker.
A visual presentation shows the different regions which make Beaujolais wines and their individual characteristics.
A 3D film shows the end of harvest party while the 4D cinema allows you to experience our beautiful region from the air.
There is also an exhibition room which displays advertising posters for wine and spirits dating from 1890 to 1930.
There is also a reconstruction of a Lyonnais bistro, complete with people from our region.
There are also areas dedicated to barrel-making, modern and traditional winemaking methods, making of glasses, bottles and corks.
The different elements involved in wine-conditioning are displayed in chronological order in 4 parts - barrels, glasses, corks and caps.
Explanations on the different stages of fabrication, the raw materials, evolution and the use of these materials are presented in videos and displays.
The Wine village is open from Wednesday to Sunday with the Hameau-Station-Garden Pass or the Hameau-Station Pass.
