A small museum. A few old farm implements. Great collection of old bottles, glasses, corkscrews etc. But really if you're not totally into it not really worth it. Complementary glass of wine nice. Maybe worth it if you can afford the full tasting and meal...More

After you've been to the big popular museums, get off the beaten path and explore this odd little place. You'll learn a bit about the production of French wine and this particular part of Paris.

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.

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.

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!

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive

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

We visited in winter so they suggested we book incase there were large party bookings but it was not necessary at this time of year. I would definitely book for lunch if coming in the high season.
