Posted by Imogen Searra on 24 June 2019

La Cité du Vin, meaning ‘The City of Wine’, is the epitome of French culture. Located in Bordeaux, this theme-park-meets-museum is the stuff of wine lovers’ dreams.

The City of Wine has been described as the flagship of Bordeaux wine tourism and the symbol of the city. The 10-storey theme park showcases the world of wine.

From learning about the history of civilisation, different vineyards across the world, encountering virtual professors, to learning about wines through the millennia and cultures, there is something for all wine-lovers to enjoy.
