A Winery Theme Park, Are You Kidding Me?
If you're a wine lover and wouldn't mind learning more about the French culture, this is a must-see destination.
Picture this, a theme park that sends its visitors on an exploration of a variety of wines. Look no further, La Cité du Vin which translates to The City of Wine opened in 2016 and is every girls dream. Get this, you only have to travel to Bordeaux, France to check it out, lol.
La Cité du Vin holds the answers to all your big wine questions. With more than 20 different themed areas that feature a multitude of interactive exhibitions to teach you about vinification from all over the world. Who wouldn't want to take a virtual helicopter ride through over 20 winemaking regions in 17 countries? Perhaps heights aren't your cup of tea, there is also a simulated boat ride that’ll walk you through how wine merchants transported their cargo, centuries ago.
Fun fact, La Cité was built by architects to resemble the swirl in a wine glass.🍷
If you're still questioning whether the long voyage is worth it, La Cité du Vin also offers guided tours, a retail shop, a theater, and tasting workshops on how to pair your favorite foods with wine. Ticket prices vary, but begin at $23, and include a glass of wine. This would make a perfect honeymoon for wine lovers or even a "Girls Weekend" deluxe!
So book your trip to La Cité du Vin and unwind (see what I did there) in the country of love with your favorite mom friends, or dad friends, or anyone who shares your love for wine.
