DISCOVER BORDEAUX AND ALL ITS FANTASTIC LOCATIONS
Capital of the seafood-loving Aquitaine region, Bordeaux lies along the banks of the River Garonne, and is home to 362 magnificent monuments, several first class museums and a pedestrian shopping zone that’s over a kilometre long. This charming city has also been famous for fine wines since Roman times, and is still at the epicentre of today’s international wine trade. Get some inside information by visiting Bordeaux’s vintners where you can sample and buy sweet whites such as Chateau d’Yquem, and exclusive reds like Chateaux Margaux, and other top wines at hard-to-beat prices. But if you follow our tips and roam off the beaten track, you’ll discover there’s a lot more to buzzing Bordeaux than historical sights, great shopping and posh grape juice.
VIEILLARD: BORDEAUX EARTHENWARE
The Vieillard factory was one of the most important companies in Bordeaux in the 19th century. The company employed many people at the time, and even though the factory closed in 1895, its legacy lives on through its large production of faience. This earthenware is still highly valued and sought after by the people of Bordeaux. Their attachment is sentimental, but also esthetic, as Vieillard produced both everyday pieces and very beautiful creations. This work can be seen in second-hand shops and at the musée des Arts décoratifs.
CITÉ DU VIN
For many centuries wine has been part of our daily lives, and our way of living, at celebrations, festivals and more. From one civilisation to another, one period of time to another, wine doesn’t always play the same role. What is more, over the course of time, wine production has progressed, in the same way that each different landscape has its own special properties. These are exactly the kinds of details that Cité du Vin in Bordeaux will help you to uncover.
LES BERGES DE GARONNE PARK
Want to go where the locals in Bordeaux go when looking for a green space? Then slam a beret on your head, grab a baguette and a bottle of wine, and head for the Les Berges de Garonne. An eco paradise planted with a lazy shady selection of trees, this vast (yet surprisingly unknown) park in the centre of town is the place to spend a lazy summer afternoon. Or get more energetic Davy-Crockett kicks by hiring a canoe and heading out to explore that mighty Garonne river.
