Wine culture workshops

The workshops are organised in circular rooms that encourage discussion and exchange. Everything is round at the Cité du Vin ! The wines tasted come from different wine-growing regions that are partners with the Cité du Vin.

Workshops are for people aged 18 and over.

Discovery workshop

Gain confidence in your tasting ability !

Have you always wanted to participate in a wine tasting session but never dared to do so? This new kind of introductory wine tasting workshop is for you! Forget all your preconceived ideas about wine tasting, its codes, its customs, but also its obstacles and barriers. Reset all your preconceptions and trust only yourself: you have 5 senses, so you know how to taste!

During this one-hour wine tasting workshop, you will taste three wines by successively calling upon each of the senses required for wine tasting: sight, smell and taste.

French speaking workshop, accessible in English, Spanish, German and Italian thanks to an audioguide
