Cosy and worth the time

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.

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.

This funky little museum has a short but very good history of wine. Then the restaurant is awesome. Oh wait....check out the wine list!

If you are well worth a visit if you are interested in anything to do with wine..... The history & artefacts are fascinating & there are lots of curiosities.... They do a wine & cheese flight at the end which is a separate price, but also worth it!!

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, they'll have a wine master walk you through your tasting as well. He wasn't available... More

If one is wondering about everything wine and champagne, then this is the museum for you. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave our group a trip back in time to the roots of winemaking in France. At the end of our tour we were treated to a wine tasting, complete with "guessing which region" of France each wine... More

I had the pleasure of visiting the Musee Du Vin during a business dinner my husband was attending. I arrived early and was greeted warmly by our host who invited me in from the rain. It is a quaint place with a massive amount of artifacts within the tour. Fascinating history and information regarding wine and its production. We are... More

This is an interesting museum, but it's not included in the Paris Pass and so costs about 11.50 Euros. Audio guide is free though and informative but unentertaining. When you think of France you think of wine, so this felt like a must, so we were a little disappointed, it is very dated and could be loads better. Having said... More

My husband and I travel to Paris frequently and, since we've already seen the main tourist attractions, spend most of our time just walking and/or checking out the more offbeat sights. This is one such sight. The museum is old and kitschy, but has its own charm. The glass of wine at the end is fun too. It's also in... More

Staying in Trocadero

Neighbourhood Profile
Trocadero
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 significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
