« Le musée du Louvre » is quite famous but have you ever heard about « Les Caves du Louvre » ? I have never heard about it before but it is a good place to go in Paris if you want to have a first wine tasting experience.
Situated at 52, rue de l’arbre sec in the first arrondissement in Paris, « Les Caves du Louvre » offers you the opportunity to discover the history of wine.
Please ensure that you have downloaded the application « Wine in Paris » from PlayStore or App Store before going there and verify that the bluetooth is switched off. It disturbs the proper functionning of the app while being on. Please visit the website before booking your tickets. We took the ticket at 30€ which include the access, tasting of 3 wines and 1 personalised bottle.
I would advise for any beginner to start to do a little bit of reading before visiting « Les Caves du Louvre ». Whilst the application « Wine in Paris » is very helpful, nothing replaces an individual explaining it to you and replying to your questions on the spot.
The interactive games available make the visit interesting but again, if you go there with a professional, he or she will give her personal advice on the questions.
Nicolas the sommelier has been wonderful and makes the wine tasting experience at the end as the cherry on the top.
