Wine & Design, Contemporary Glassware

With this third major exhibition taking place from 14 March to 30 June 2019, La Cité du Vin has chosen a decidedly contemporary project bringing together art, design and wine.  This exhibition intends to explore the links between glass containers for wine, champagne and cognac, through a broader reflection on contemporary design and wine as cultural phenomena.  From its production to its history, wine has many points in common with glass.
