La Cité du Vin, or the City of Wine, has opened its doors in Bordeaux, France, the region long associated with some of the world’s finest wines.

The 10-story building features over 20 interactive exhibits, including a virtual trip on a wine merchant ship down the Gironde River, and a tasting exhibit, where visitors learn to experience wine with all five senses.

And, of course, there is wine—over 14,000 bottles in the cellar, and served at various wine bars and restaurants throughout the property.
