Visit the Caves du Louvre for a sensational journey! This fascinating insight into the world of France's most famous export takes you from its lovely French vineyard beginnings to the global success it is today.
This visit takes place right by the Louvre, in stunning 18th-century wine cellars that were once used by the King of France himself. The visit then takes you through the various steps of the winemaking process, from the grape to the bottle. The experience is highly interactive with games, videos and learning about wine suddenly becomes easy and fun.
Along the way, you’ll learn fascinating stories, eye-opening anecdotes and fun facts behind this enchanting craft.
At the end of your tour, you will meet a French Sommelier, who will happily answer all your questions, as you sample 3 French wines (or grape juice for the children!). This will be in the bar, where the tour ends.
If you would like to have a glass of champagne as well as the 3 wine tastings, you will need to choose this option from the drop-down list when purchasing your voucher.
