Just saw the news that the world's first wine theme park and museum is set to open in Bordeaux — but will the park be loved or hated by wine connoisseurs?

I know what your thinking. You are imagining cascading down a roller-coaster in a wine bottle shaped cart, sticky hands from wine faloured cotton candy and selfies with the theme parks costume wearing mascots. Remember that Simpsons where Bart and Lisa go to Duff gardens? You are imagining that.

However this is Bordeaux were talking about, and having just watched the trailer for the park I can safely say wine fans might want to start booking tickets now.

The 10 story park is called La Cité du Vin (The City of Wine in English) and it is designed to offer visitors an entirely immersive experience through expert led tasting sessions, lectures and classes and the chance to learn about the history of wine.

The museum is open from today and costs just $22 - will you be buying a ticket?
