What people are saying about Cité du Vin
Great experience! We loved La Cite du Vin! Awesome Museum, very interactive, entertaining, modern & well prepared exhibitions! You can spend hours discovering so many interesting info about wine and its history! We enjoyed the glass of wine and the great view in the top floor. great architecture building! We also booked a wine tour for the other day in the Cité tourist info corner. The tour guide told us many interesting information in the bus on the way to the first chateau. She was very friendly and enterteining however her english with french accent was a bit fast and we could not understand all she was saying. We visited to vineries, one had modern approach in comparison with the second one. It was very interesting to see old fashioned and modern approch of wine process! We tasted two types of wine at both chateuas. November is not the best month for wine tours (cloudy, windy, rainy, cold) but it was a great thing to do in Bordeaux!!!
The Bordeaux city pass was definitely worth the price! It gave us access to several museums including La Cité Du Vin. We had free transportation which came in handy when going to the airport on our final day. It also saved us tons of money since we didn't have to use Ubers or taxis. Sometimes the buses were a little off or the stops where in odd locations but otherwise I highly recommend!
It was worth pre purchasing the tickets. The exhibition is very interesting but takes longer than you think and if it was busy you may have to wait to hear various displays. We had lunch in restaurant 7 which was delicious and had lovely views over Bordeaux.
highly recommended experience, lots of information from many wine regions of the world. if you go in a hurry there are guided routes of approx. 1 hour, but the ideal is to dedicate 2 - 3 h
Had a great time. My wife said it reminded her of Epcot at Disney World in the United States. There was so much to see and so many things to do.
