Better than expected. Fun self guided walk thru wine cave with lots of old artifacts adn info on wine making. Free verre de vin at the end.

“Unfriendly reception and not much to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2011

We were really disappointed with this venue. If you have time and love wine, it is much better to rent a car and drive to Burgundy or the Loire Valley for a day to visit vinyards.

My husband and I were so excited to do the cheese and wine tour at Musee du Vin...when we arrived we were asked to tour the museum on our own with a little device that explained the artefacts, however this was not very effective as it could not be timed to they way you walk….
Then we came back to a little alcove where they had prepared 3 wines and 3 cheeses - the lady explained what wines they were but did not provide any information on what wine goes with what cheese... which was the part I was looking forward.
They had a conference on at the same time and it left us feeling as though were we 'put aside' and forgotten as no one came back to check on us, so we just left feeling disappointed.

“Not interesting. Expected much more.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2011

I expected to see and hear how wines are produce in France (probably in different regions). Instead I saw glasses and bottles... Disappointing.
Wine tasting also havn'r pleased. No sommelier... Pure wine selection...
Th only 1 positive thing is ancient vault.
Don't waste a time!

“The Best of Both Worlds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2011

The tour of a wine museum and then lunch within the same building is just amazing. It doesn't hurt that it is in a 15th century monestary either.

Make sure to get the audioguide. It is free and one will do nicely for two people.

Before I go any further, you need to be cognizant of the fact that if you are coming from Trocadero, you need to pay attention to the street and not miss the turn to the left down the long stairway. Again, at the end you need to do almost a 180 degree turn to your left to find the Wine Museum.

The artifacts in the museum are very interesting to say the least, the audioguide is very beneficial.

Once we were done with the Museum we made our way to the restaurant area. If you have lunch the museum tour is free.

The food was amazing. We had the Dionysius Menu for 35 Euros each. I was very, very good and more than enough food.

The waiter was attentive and the menu was available in French and English.

I would recommend this musuem and restaurant for anyone, not just wine enthusiasts.
