Published on 9 August 2017 in Exhibitions and Museums
The Platine Hotel welcomes you to the warm 50s atmosphere of our friendly hotel in the heart of one of the city’s most dynamic districts. There are lots of leisure activities to choose from in this interesting area; a visit to the Musée du Vin Paris, for example, or, for design professionals, a day at the prestigious Maison et Objet exhibition.
The Wine Museum of Paris – an endearing and convivial world
Close to the Eiffel Tower, the Museum was created in 1984 on the initiative of members of the Conseil des Échansons de France, a group that promotes French wines around the world. The museum is in the original old cellars of the Abbey of Passy.
Whether you are passionate about wines or simply curious, a team of professionals is at your disposal for various events, visits and lunches.
The Museum presents more than 2,000 objects related to wine in the magical setting of its15th century vaulted cellars. All the people who worked tirelessly to produce some of the world’s most famous wines are honoured here. The museum covers all aspects of the wine world from its traditions and trades that illustrate the richness of our heritage to thousands of years of exceptional know-how.
Gourmet stop at the museum's restaurant.
Plan your visit according to how much time you have. You can discover this charming place in 45 minutes if you opt for an audio-guided tour that includes a drink at the end of your visit. In 1 hour 30 minutes you’ll have time to fully appreciate this exceptional place and you’ll enjoy an oenological break with a tasting of three glasses of wine introduced by one of the museum’s experts.
You can have lunch in the museum’s restaurant, Les Échansons, in the atypical setting of the old 15th century cellars. The chef creates quality French cuisine based on fresh produce and it’s such a pleasure to choose fine wines from a list of over 200.
