W = Wine Museum in Paris

Today... we visit the Musée du Vin Paris...
In the abbey of Passy, in the heart of Paris, monks produced their own wine in the 14th century by cultivating a vineyard on the Chaillot Hill. Today, these cellars exhibit old bottles, wax models, vats and other tools used for winemaking. At the end of the visit, enjoy a glass of wine accompanied by some foie gras


How to get there... Metro line 6 : Passy... Bus: 72

Opening... The Wine Museum closes every year from December 24th to January 1st. The wine Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM...



and after the lovely tour... there is a restaurant...


of course there is also wine tasting... 
and wine classes... 
Shall we sign up???  oui oui oui... I know that it will be on my list of things to visit next time I am REALLY in Paris... and drinking wine along the Seine (painting available)...
 

Now... I'm off to VIRTUALLY wander around Paris and find the letter "X"... hmmmm... not sure what I will find... come back tomorrow to find out as my A to Z Challenge continues!




Looking for a painting to remember this VIRTUAL trip... visit it my shopping Gallery!!!

I know virtually nothing about wine. This museum would be some education and the classes might make me seem credible ordering in a restaurant.
Very nice post, Fifi.

Hope you will join us in our May 3rd Reflections post. Also I'd love to see what you could come up with for the May 17th Fifteen Favorite Albums post--check it out and see what you think. You could probably come up with something really creative I'm sure.

Oh Fifi, you are so wonderful to come and visit me! YOUR WORK always makes me sigh! You are a wonderful artist, and I hope that you are prospering and doing well. Your style is so Audrey Hepburn, Paris (of course) and stylized to a perfection. May I put a link to your site on my sidebar with one of your images? Anita

This has been fun. I am going to miss Paris when you are to Z.
And that wont be Z or zzzzzzzzzzing either. :) I wish I were sitting along the Seine drinking wine like in that painting.. :)

Bonjour Fifi,

What a fun place that would be to visit ~ Love your painting.
To be sitting next to the Seine, would be a lovely way to spend the day. Thanks for visiting me and I look forward to seeing the letter X
that will be a tricky one.

Hugs
Carolyn
