70 000 wine bottles in the heart of Le Marais
Last evening I had the privilege of visiting an extraordinary place: the Au bonheur du vin wine cellar. This cellar is located in the heart of Le Marais (rue des blancs manteaux) in a bank (the Credit Municipal) and all the wine you can find there (70 000 bottles!) is not for sale but belongs to individuals who simply want to keep their bottles away from light, thieves and changes of temperature. It costs about 10 €/month for 50 bottles which, I think, is pretty reasonable. This wonderful idea originates from 2 guys: Thibaut Meslay and Frédéric-Jean Hoguet (on the photo).
