La Cité du Vin, Bordeaux
June will see the opening of the grand, Cite du Vin in bordeaux. The contemporary monument will epitomise the regions magnificent flagship product; wine. The monument will celebrate the expertise of thousands of years of winemaking.
This vast glass tower will be located at the entrance to the city on the banks of the Garonne, in the up-and-coming wet dock district. With its imaginative modern design, the Cité du Vin is sure to delight tourists and wine lovers in 2016.
Visitors will be able to learn about the relationship between wine and culture from ancient times to the present day, from the arid lands of Mesopotamia to San Francisco Bay, and from the gravelly rises in Bordeaux to the wide open spaces of Australia.
Neither a museum nor a theme park, the City will blend the best of both these in a tour circuit that combines emotion, sensory stimulation, and dreams, as well as entertaining and spectacular multimedia presentations.
An observation deck on the top of the tower will give visitors a bird’s-eye view of the city and the surrounding vineyards.
