Paris Wine Museum

Dr. Oz says that drinking a daily glass of red wine is excellent for one's health. Why? because resveratrol, which is a powerful antioxidant that comes from the skins of grapes, "turns on a system in your body that prevents your cells from aging". Enough said, where do I sign up?

Well, with good health in mind, I recommend that the next time you visit Paris, you head straight for The Paris Wine Museum. Why? Well because you will be killing two birds with one shot - You'll have a glass of red wine, for your health of course, and you'll learn a bit of history while you're at it. Call it "healthy learning" if you wish.

The Wine Museum of Paris is conveniently located right across the Bir Hakeim Bridge, over the river Seine, near our layover hotel. Take the metro from the Bir Hakeim station, one stop down (over the river) to the Passy Metro station. Then, just walk down the Metro stairs, around the corner once, than again - to the right both times - and at the end of that very short street, you will find the museum in a cul-de-sac (dead end street) almost right below the Metro station (on the right side of it, if facing the river Seine).

I'm enclosing a map with the exact location for the museum and the museum's address below. for additional directions, speak to the hotel's concierge before you leave your hotel.

The Paris Wine Museum is housed in a historic building from the XV Century. Filled with ambiance, the building has vaulted ceilings and aged stone walls. The museum also houses a wonderful collection of quirky, ancient wine memorabilia and a quaint restaurant in the premises. Lunch is served from Tuesday to Sunday from 12am to 3pm via three set lunch menus. All these menus include, of course, some delicious wine. But wait, there's more! The museum also holds wine tasting classes on Saturdays. Please check their website in the (blue) link below for schedules and prices if interested.

FYI, if you choose to have lunch at the museum, you will get free admission to the museum. On the other hand, if you pay for admission, you will get a free glass of wine (or any beverage) included with the price of admission. Either way, you will get a chance to be healthy! Which is why you came here in the first place right?

So there you go my friends. You say "to health" and I say "Salud"!
