France Opens the World’s First Wine Theme Park

Allow us to introduce La Cité du Vin, a massive, visually stunning museum dedicated to all things vino, and in the most befitting of places – the heart of Bordeaux.


Though it just debuted in June, the wine lover’s paradise has already made a name for itself thanks to an instantly iconic design, courtesy of XTU architects Anouk Legendre and Nicolas Desmazières. The building’s striking exterior is meant to evoke “gnarled vine stock, wine swirling in a glass, eddies on the Garonne,” by employing a nuanced design heavy on curves and reflective surfaces that trick the eye into perceiving perpetual movement. Sounds pretty cool, right?
