Musée Cantonale de la Vigne et du Vin
Musée Cantonale de la Vigne et du Vin Review
Neuchâtel is part of what is known as the Three Lakes wine region, the smallest of Switzerland's six winegrowing areas. The famous Pinot Noir rosé wine, Oeil de Perdrix, originated in Neuchâtel and the canton produces many other excellent wines, including traditional-method sparkling wine made by the Mauler winery in an old Benedictine monastery in Val-de-Travers. Amid the vineyards that fan out to the west of Neuchâtel city and slope gently down to the lake sits Château Boudry, which houses the Musée Cantonale de la Vigne et du Vin (Cantonal Museum of Vine and Wine).
