There is nothing like a theme park for a day to remember with the whole family. Some theme parks, though, would be more fitting for a fun trip with your besties.
A perfect example is Cité du Vin, in France, where all attractions are about wine. Because mamas need some fun, too!
If You Say France You Say Wine
What is the first country that comes to mind when talking about excellent wines? Mais oui, France!
As one of the biggest wine producers globally, second only to Italy, France is the perfect place for a wine theme park. With around eight billion wine bottles produced each year, they are not just playing around!
A trip with your girlfriends around the most renowned wine destinations would take you to Hameau du Vin, Château de Pierreclos, the region Champagne. Of course, you cannot miss a stop at Cité du Vin (or “city of wine” in English) in Bordeaux.
Plenty Of Fun Activities For You
Since 2016, Cité du Vin offers fun activities to educate visitors about wine culture. Needless to say, there are also many chances to taste the delicious grapes juice.
Through 20 themed areas, you can learn about the wine industry in an enjoyable way. For example, you can fly in a virtual helicopter over the most famous vineyards in the world.
To try something more hands-on, a workshop will teach you how to properly pair wines with chocolate and cheese. Not a bad skill to impress your friends at parties!
The cherry on top – quite literally on top – is the Belvedere. From there, you can taste excellent wines while looking down at a 360-degree view over Bordeaux.
No Time For Boredom
With its 13,350-square-meter space spaning over 10 levels, the theme park will keep you busy for the day.
In the end, you will have an impressive knowledge of wine, its production, and history. We dare say you might also become a tiny bit tipsy.
Hopefully, a holiday in France will be possible again soon. Until then, call your friends and add this stop to your travel bucket list!
