La Cité du Vin, in Bordeaux, is a cultural space devoted to winemaking heritage, the Bordeaux region's spearhead attraction. A flagship wine tourism destination since 2016, the museum covers 13,350 m² spread over 10 floors. Its architecture is a curiosity in itself, due to its round exterior, wooden vault and 55-metre-high spire marking its presence in the area.
On the second floor of the building, the permanent exhibition is the heart of La Cité and offers a real initiation into the world of wine. Around twenty themed areas, based on interviews with qualified experts and offering a commentary via a digital tool, make for an interactive visit full of discoveries. All aspects of wine are revealed, spanning the centuries, countries and cultures of the whole world!
On the first floor of La Cité du Vin, a temporary exhibition area covering more than 700 m² displays works of art from prestigious museums or private collections. 35 metres high, the belvedere on the eighth floor offers a unique sensory experience, with wine from all over the world to taste, in addition to its superb view over Bordeaux and its surroundings. Another highlight of the place, the Wild Garden (Jardin sauvage), created in a Natura 2000-certified area, is a link between La Cité du Vin, the Garonne and the vineyards.
