    Visit: Musee du Vin (Wine Museum), 5 rue des Eaux 16e, 75016 Paris France

    The exhibition section is housed in the old quarries of Passy, exploited between the 13th and the 18th century to supply the stones needed for the buildings of the capital, today serve as a setting for the Wine Museum. This limestone characterizes a geological stage universally known as Lutécien (Lutèce, former name of Paris) located here at 37m80 above sea level. The galleries of the Museum were dug in the lower part of this geological layer , according to the technique of the turned pillars, that is to say leaving pillars regularly spaced to support the sky. Masonry walls were built, especially in the 19th century, to consolidate these galleries. A well that can be seen at the entrance of the Museum testifies to the existence of water tables sometimes gushing. Various sources of mineral water were indeed discovered in this district of Passy between the middle of the 17th century and 1754 (hence the name given to the rue des Eaux). The waters of Passy were exploited until the Second Empire, but it was especially in the 18th century that they were the most fashionable, attracting many curists of good Parisian society, people of letters and artists.

    The restaurant part is located in the old cellars of the Abbey (which can accommodate groups of 15 to 250 people) and were used in the 16th and 17th century by the Friars of the Order of the Minimes of the Convent of Passy who stored there their wine. Located along the current Beethoven Street, it was surrounded by terraced gardens bordering the Seine, but also orchards and vineyards on the slopes of the hillside. From these vines, whose Rue Vineuse and the rue des Vignes remind us today of the existence, the Brothers produced a nice clear wine that King Louis XIII will love to drink after his hunting in the Bois de Boulogne.

    Chef Mr Labiadh offers a cuisine inspired by the great classics of French cuisine that harmonizes well with the more than 200 references to the wine list.

    This is very interesting and gives you a good historical sense of place as the museum is located in the home of an 18th Century wine merchant. The Cite du Vin is very high tech and geared towards younger people while this small museum is...More
