Someone has finally made a theme park free of screaming children and filled with alcohol. La Cité du Vin, which translates to “the city of wine” and probably “heaven on Earth,” is a full-blown wine theme park. It’s located in no other than Bordeaux, one of France’s most famous wine-making regions, and will open in June, KTRK reported.
There are no roller coasters at this theme park—coasters and carafes aren’t exactly the best combination—but there are 20 wine-themed sections and exhibits that cover the history and culture of wine. There is also a 250-seat auditorium for classes, screenings and wine-tasting sessions in the 10-story building, High Snobiety noted.
La Cité du Vin—which is housed in a stunning structure that puts Disneyland to shame—also has two restaurants on-site. One offers dishes made from in-season regional produce, while the other boasts 800 bottles of wine from around the world and some special-seeming tapas. There will be no limp corn dogs and under-salted pretzels sold at exorbitant prices.
