Learn about wine in the Cité du Vin. The greatest masters of wine, from master sommeliers to the best wine-makers of the world can confirm that learning the secrets of this worshiped nectar can be a life-long, ongoing process of tasting & experimenting. Being in the most important wine-producing region of the planet can be a good chance for anyone to improve his/her knowledge of this glorified product of man. There are a bunch of places in this city where you can do that. More than enough really. The best place to do that is in Bordeaux?  The Cité du Vin.


Through some twenty digital spaces, the Permanent exhibition of the Cité du Vin invites you on a journey to the heart of the great history of wine. In this interactive museum, you will discover how this universal heritage has inspired people and shaped both their life and their territory for millennia. Immersed in interactive universes, seated virtually with the great figures of History, or even by testing your senses, 3000 m² await you for individual and collective, educational, immersive, dreamlike, multisensory experiences …


You can visit the Permanent exhibition at your own pace! The average visit lasts between 2 hours and 3 hours, but it is also possible to spend the whole day there for the more avid visitors. La Cité du Vin is managed by the Fondation pour la culture et les civilisations du vin, named an accredited charitable foundation. Its missions: protect, celebrate and transmit the heritage of wine.
