L’Atelier du Vin and Paris Society: the art of entertaining

The French art de vivre is distinguished by a timeless elegance. It evokes a sense of conviviality and refinement, where every detail is carefully considered to offer a memorable experience – and it’s this very essence that L’Atelier du Vin and Paris Society have sought to capture and amplify through a fascinating collaboration. By combining their own respective expertise, these two prestigious institutions celebrate the art of entertaining French-style, where quality produce meets excellent service.

Paris Society’s exceptional venues in the heart of the French capital embody Parisian elegance. With their breath-taking views over the City of Light, Paris Society’s Parisian terraces are reminiscent of the vast expanses of French vineyards. Like the hillsides of Champagne or the rolling landscapes of Bordeaux, these terraces are havens of tranquillity and beauty that invite reflection and nurture a desire to savour.

Just an hour from Paris, L’Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay stands majestically in unspoilt countryside, offering a haven of peace and serenity. This enchanting site, once renovated by the Rothschild family and now reinvented by Paris Society, is a veritable playground, where the charm of a family home blends with the elegance of its legacy.

With its centuries-old walls and leafy gardens, the abbey provides a peaceful space to recharge and to reconnect with the natural world. Every stone, every nook and every cranny exudes authenticity and warmth, reminiscent of cosy moments spent by the fire. The architecture, subtly revisited by Cordelia de Castellane, is both formal and quirky, allowing the past to meet the present with a timeless elegance.

To remember this luxurious journey into the countryside, L’Atelier du Vin has combined with L’Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay to offer visitors a refined souvenir. Two exceptional pouches have been specially created, each containing an emblematic corkscrew:

  • Oeno Motion Nomad: This elegant genuine leather case contains a sturdy corkscrew made from solid wood and chromed metal, ensuring smooth, precise bottle opening. This vertical-lever corkscrew is an emblematic wine accessory from L’Atelier du Vin that’s been constantly improved over the years.
  • Soft Machine Nomad: The Soft Machine® extracts corks in a single movement thanks to its unique rack-and-pinion system. Conceived and designed by L’Atelier du Vin, this bottle opener integrates a cap-cutting blade and a bottle opener in the handle and claw.

Handmade from full-grain leather in Italy, these pouches combine beauty and durability. Their colour is natural and timeless, and complements the steel of the tools and the gold eyelet detailing.
