One moment out of time
The Wine Museum is a place with a cultural vocation which wants to testify to the richness and diversity of French heritage through an exhibition of tools and objects relating to the work of the vine and wine. the Wine Museum welcomes you in its vaulted cellars dug in old coarse limestone quarries, exploited between the 13th and 18th centuries to provide the freestone necessary for the constructions of Paris. This limestone characterizes a geological stage universally known under the name of Lutécien (from Lutèce, former name of Paris) located here at 37 m 80 above sea level.
The best wines from French Terroirs
The galleries of the Museum were dug in the lower part of this geological layer, using the technique of turned pillars, that is to say, leaving regularly spaced pillars to support the sky. The permanent collection of the wine museum, owned by the Conseil des Échansons de France, pays tribute to all those who, for centuries, have worked to produce world-famous wines. Trades and traditions are evoked, illustrating two thousand years of know-how and the richness of our heritage. This place also aims to introduce the best wines from French terroirs. A restaurant, tasting courses and themed evenings with oenological events invite you to live unique experiences in an exceptional setting, right in the heart of Paris.
