Musée du Vin in Paris

Speaking about bottle collecting at an evening organised by the Club Francais du Tire-Bouchon held at the Musée du Vin in Paris. This was a great evening in the prestigious caves of the museum dating back to the middle ages, used at one time as a wine cellar for the famous "Jules Verne" restaurant in the Eiffel Tour. It must be at least 10 years since I have visited the museum and I was amazed by how the collection of wine related exhibits has grown. I was pleased to see that under the management of Jean-Jacques Hervy, conservator at the museum since 1984, the exhibit of 18th and 19th century wine bottles has expanded significantly.
