Inspirock Rating:
2.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Translated simply as the wine museum, Musée du Vin is in former limestone quarries in the center of Paris. Explore three vaulted cellars on the property, which the Friars of Passy used in the 16th and 17th centuries to store their wine. These cellars now serve as the museum's restaurant, so you can enjoy a delicious meal accompanied by a glass of fine wine. You also can partake in wine tasting, fine cheese, and charcuterie. The exhibits feature more than 2,000 pieces covering the tools of viticulture, winemaking, and wine tasting. The oldest date back a century before Jesus Christ; the most recent is from the 19th century. Wax figures, including Napoleon, Pasteur, and Balzac, depict objects in the collection as well.

  • Superb setting in old galleries. Along the way we see a whole bunch of old items for all turning trades around the wine. Short film at the end on the wines of Alsace. Very friendly staff. As part of the visit that we by our way, we had a bottle of wine. We had the choice between red, white or rosé.

  • 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 e...  read more »
  • We offered a tasting and a course on the basics of wine to a friend for her birthday. We have not been disappointed by our "Professor" as passionate as exciting. The tasted wines were very good, we even had the right of stay enjoy our favorite for a good hour more bottle. A great time where we drank as well words as good wine! I'll be back!

  • Just the right amount of museum, wine cave, intimacy and elegance.
  • We held a team-building meeting here, and the owners arranged for a small meeting space in the restaurant. After the meeting, we had a delicious meal followed by a wine-tasting challenge to see who could place the wines with their regions. This is a great place for small get-togethers, and the meal and wine were good.

  • Super sympa ! Très bon.
  • The Wine Museum is nice but a guide would have made it more exciting. Very disappointed by the "discovery evening" theme Bordeaux. The setting is pleasant but dinner is a very bad value for money. If you ask an extra drink an aperitif you are asked to pay on the field rather than at the end of dinner. The young sommelier is not frankly polished, the wines served are not transcendent like the meal which is not generous, outgoing dessert from the freezer is a cutting test! & In addition to that, no cheese before dessert! Incidentally, an air of music during the meal would have been a luxury. Good point, the principle of a large table is user friendly & allows you to easily exchange opinions with other people. Short, to €63 / person & booked two months in advance, I expect well better! For this budget there are restaurants much less pretantieux, where the sommelier makes you dream & where you pull out sated! A fragrance of heaving tourist!
