A unique cultural establishment, halfway between a museum and a theme park, the Cité du Vin offers a permanent exhibitions, temporary exhibitions, workshops and meeting and degustation places: reading rooms, cellar-library, a wine bar and restaurants.
This unique building with its monumental and futuristic architecture offers a cultural and sensory journey through the history of wine, the landscapes it has shaped and the people who have cultivated it. It is thanks to a digital guide that you will make the visit at your own pace and according to your desires: your headset automatically triggers multimedia content enriched according to your movements and stops among the 20 stages that make up the permanent route on 3,000 m² of exhibition space. Allow 2 to 3 hours to discover these thematic areas. Don't miss "The buffet of the 5 senses" where your taste and your sense of smell will be solicited, and finally the highlight of the visit: the tasting of a glass of wine or grape juice on a 35 meters high Belvedere with an exceptional view on Bordeaux and the Garonne. And to extend both the view and the taste experience, finish your visit at the "7" table, a panoramic restaurant located on the 7th floor.
A sensory journey immersed in the secrets of wine, the Cité du Vin does not forget to prevent the effects of alcohol abuse in its "Drink and Disasters" area. Accessible on foot, by bike, by tramway, by bus, or by boat, leave your car to fully enjoy the tastings!
