Located just behind the Palais Royal, Willi’s Wine Bar is a Parisian institution where for a little over 30 years its British owner, Mark Williamson, has been bringing his own unique blend of FrAnglais Culture to visitors from all over the world.

For us, WINE IS A MAGICAL SOCIAL CEMENT. Enjoying wine is a way to love life and one’s fellows. Wine enchants our palates, it loosens tongues, enhances ephemeral & enduring friendships and nourishes our imaginations.

BUT IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT LE VIN !

The celebration of wine through the arts has gone on since the beginning of time. It is an inexhaustible richness and a concentrate of heritage, offered to us all to treasure, in delicate bottles.

We have long encouraged painters, graphic artists and designers to add their talent, inspiration and free spirit to our celebration of wine’s pleasures by contributing to this unusual series of original posters that has become known as the « Willi'sBottleArt » Collection.

Appreciated by wine lovers the World over it brings together artists such as Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Alberto Bali, Jacques de Loustal and Jean-François Octave.

The latest vintage of “Willi’s Bottle Art” will come courtesy of Swedish artist Jonas Bergstrand, graduate of the Forsberg School of Design. "To me wine is culture in liquid form. What’s in the glass in front of me has taken years of careful planning and know-how to present. The process and craftsmanship that governs it makes wine intriguing, just like literature and art, " he explains.

Risks and challenges

Having 30 years of experience in editing & delivering our posters, we anticipate the project being on schedule with the posters being shipped during the first two weeks of November, thus leaving us free to drink Beaujolais during the 3rd week ! We see the greatest challenge arising through shipping to places that we have not shipped to before, but this is part of the fun! The United Kingdom, Europe, Canada & the USA, Japan, Australia & New Zealand are all tried tested, so forwards, onwards into the glow of the unknown...& thank you for your help !
