We know you need no better excuse to pop across the channel to France than to visit the Calais Wine Superstore, however, this may come a close second!
Set to open tomorrow (June 1st) is a wine theme park! It is called la Cité du Vin (or the City of Wine) and is opening in Bordeaux.
The building itself is visually beautiful and was designed to "evoke wine's soul and liquid nature". Inside boasts 20 themed areas, a 250-seat auditorium, expert-led tasting sessions, and a simulated boat ride which invites you to become a passenger on a merchant ship and depart on a historic voyage. It promises to be a sensory and educational adventure for anyone with an appreciation for wine.
You will also have the chance to taste a huge selection of wine while looking out across Bordeaux from a height of 35m. An experience not to be missed.
Fancy being one of the first through the doors? It's the perfect pairing to a Calais Wine Superstore visit, that way you can get a free ferry or eurotunnel crossing and sneak in a bargain short break - perfect!
