The museum is in a vaulted cellar and has great atmosphere. The English language guide was a hand held audio guide which was difficult to hear if other visitors were listening to a different part of the recording, ie there were no head phones. It...More

We wondered what we could learn about wine, my companion growing up in Paris and having wine since she was a child, and me discovering red wine as a prescription from my doctor 30 years ago. Despite traveling the world and visiting many wineries, this...More

After you've been to the big popular museums, get off the beaten path and explore this odd little place. You'll learn a bit about the production of French wine and this particular part of Paris.

Perhaps expectations were too high, but I was disappointed in this museum. The displays are very basic and there is very little related to the history or art of wine making. Most displays are simply erratic and small collections of tools, earthenware and glassware.

Nice wine, cosy locale, friendly personnel and a lot of wine knowledge. We did not know of this place and ended up being happily surprised.

Although the exhibit itself is interesting, the real star of this attraction is their wine tasting. We were presented with 3 different wines to compare and contrast, all three wonderful! Much better than you'd get at a random cafe or bistro. For an additional $10/person,...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical

We visited in winter so they suggested we book incase there were large party bookings but it was not necessary at this time of year. I would definitely book for lunch if coming in the high season.
