First, we learned about Italy’s insane new food theme park, and our heads just about popped off. Now there’s news of a wine-focused theme park in France, and we’re so excited we’ll need to calm our nerves with at least a half glass of rosé before we can even compose ourselves to describe it further.
Now then. Opening tomorrow in Bordeaux (where else?) La Cité du Vin, as it is known, offers all kind of wine-related fun — including tastings, restaurants, shopping, and more.
The theme park’s stated mission is to “promote and share the cultural, universal, and living heritage that is wine with the broadest possible audience,” with the goal of focusing on “emotions, sensations, and imagination.”
The tour experience is meant to “pass on knowledge interactively, to experience things at your own pace, to learn according to your personal wishes.” Our wish is to drink wine in a fabulous French environment — so La Cité du Vin seems to satisfy that desire right off the bat.
The whole thing is set within a wild architectural background, as pictured above, with design meant to evoke flowing liquid. As in the wine that will flow copiously into our mouths when we visit.
BRB. We’re Bordeaux bound!
