Musée du Vin
Musée du Vin Review
Fans of wine making will enjoy this quirky museum housed in a 15th-century abbey, a reminder of Passy's roots as a pastoral village. Though hardly exhaustive, the collection contains old wine bottles, glassware, and ancient wine-related pottery excavated in Paris. Wine-making paraphernalia shares the grottolike space with hokey figures retired from the city's wax museum, including Napoléon appraising a glass of Burgundy. But you can partake in a thoroughly nonhokey wine tasting, or bring home one of the 200-plus bottles for sale in the tiny gift shop. There's a free English audioguide. Check online for a calendar of wine tastings and classes offered in English. You can book ahead for lunch, too. (Restaurant open Tuesday through Saturday, noon–3). This is one of the only places in Paris where you'll find a non-dosage (no sugar added) champagne.
