Situated in Bordeaux, on the banks of the Garonne, La Cité du Vin is a unique cultural facility where wine comes to life through an immersive, sensorial approach, all set within an evocative architectural design. La Cité du Vin gives a different view of wine, across the world, across the ages, across all cultures and all civilisations.
Discover the permanent tour, an open exhibition space occupying more than 3,000 m², where nearly twenty different themed areas invite you to take a voyage of discovery and enjoy a unique experience exploring the many and varied facets of wine across time and space.
A visit to the permanent tour also includes the travel companion, a free, innovative tool available in eight languages and the access to La Cité du Vin’s Belvedere, where you will discover a 360° view of Bordeaux whilst tasting a glass of world wine.
From its height of 35 metres on the eighth floor of La Cité du Vin, the Belvedere, the culmination of a visit to the permanent tour, invites visitors to discover the Gironde city from another perspective, like a watchtower. In this spot overlooking the river at the top of the iconic building you can admire Bordeaux, its city and surroundings, spreading out around you from all sides.
Inviting visitors to contemplate, this unique panoramic view establishes natural continuity between a visit to the permanent tour and the culmination of this cultural experience: tasting a glass of wine from the very best wine regions of the world. In partnership with inter-professional organisations in various wine regions across the world, you will have an opportunity to taste a wine from a regularly updated selection of twenty bottles.
In this exceptional space, a monumental chandelier made of thousands of bottles and a 10-metre-long oak counter enhance the uniqueness of the location. With its belvedere, La Cité du Vin is symbolically asserting its role as a beacon and a window opening out onto the region, and farther to the entire world.
Please note: The youngest won’t be left out, with an opportunity to discover a range of grape juices selected especially for them.
