Erscheinungsdatum: 15.05.2024
Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer is organising a series of exclusive events to mark the 150th anniversary of the Cellars at the Hôtel de Paris.

Explore the fascinating history of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo Cellars, and take this unique opportunity to discover one of the Principality’s hidden treasures. Originally opened back in 1874, the iconic cellars have seen over a century of history come and go, often leaving their own indelible mark on the passage of time..

Priceless heritage: 150 years of history
The history of the Hôtel de Paris Cellars goes back to the pioneering François Blanc, who in 1864 came up with the idea of creating a new resort, consisting of several properties all linked to the same house. The vast construction project was launched in 1874 by Marie Blanc, who also provided part of the funds required. Since then, the cellars have been the resort’s “wine hub”, housing over 450,000 bottles of the finest and most sought-after vintages, all under the expert stewardship of Executive Head Sommelier, Patrice Franck.

Explore a hidden treasure
The Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo Cellars are much more than a mere underground storage area. Tucked away beneath the hotel’s foundations, they are the very essence of refinement and exclusivity. To mark their 150th anniversary, these legendary cellars will be opening their doors for a unique celebration of prestige and authenticity, to include: guided tours, exclusive lunches and dinners prepared by the Principality’s top chefs, and the chance to try some of the resort’s rarest and most exceptional vintages. An unforgettable wine experience for those with a taste for the very finest things in life.
