Bearing in mind that they are famous for their Bordeaux, surprising us what they have been waiting for? France is opening a theme park which celebrates the joy of wine. Called La Cité du Vin (or the City of Wine) in Bordeaux, new theme park/museum is designed to resemble wine swirling in a glass and the top of the building provides a stunning 360-degree view of Bordeaux. Of course, it’s all wine, everything.
The park offers a “permanent tour” where guest can visit 20 different themed areas exploring the history and culture of wine. Wine-tasting sessions, educational wine courses & tours, a restaurant, and a wine bar with more than 50 types of wine will all be on offer.
There is also a simulated boat tour, which takes you on a merchant’s galley around the globe. They also have a special wine boutique where you can purchase over 80 different types of wine.
Admissions prices are about $20 a ticket and is slated to open on June 1, 2016.
