In the heart of the vineyards of Chablais, you will find Château d'Aigle - a true fortress that was built by the Savoys in the 12th Century, and reconstructed by the Berns in the 15th Century. This Wine and Wine-Making Museum as well as the Museum of Wine Labels, located there, have the perfect location for exhibiting the 2000 year old tradition of wine and the legacy of wine-making.
In the 17 rooms of the Wine and Wine-Making Museum, there are more than 1000 exhibit pieces about wine, vineyards and wine-making in the Canton of Vaud.
