Welcome to Bordeaux featuring its world heritage and legendary vineyards

Bordeaux is the fifth largest city in France but also one of the most elegant and picturesque town reputed for its unique lifestyle. You will enjoy its alive shopping streets, historic quarters, food markets, cafés, wine bars, traditional and gourmet restaurants.
The city gave its name to the legendary vineyard and outstanding chateaux. Ideally located at the Gironde river estuary, about 30 miles from the Atlantic coast, the city of Bordeaux was the largest port in France before the 1789 Revolution. The wine business contributed to make merchants fortunate and to create a fabulous architectural heritage: private mansions, theaters and museums, tree-shaded thoroughfares and large avenues that invite to walks, beautifully designed river banks facing classified buildings such as Hotel de la Bourse, Grand Pavilion and fountains.

From the Médoc to Saint-Emilion, Entre-Deux-Mers, Graves and Sauternes, the vineyard of Bordeaux spreads over 295.000 acres and encompasses 65 appellations and more than 7000 individual estates.

Yet Bordeaux gained international recognition thanks to the prestigious chateaux such as Mouton Rothschild, Margaux, Cheval Blanc, Latour, Pavie, Yquem, etc.
In Médoc, Graves and Sauternes wine regions, you will learn about the 1855 classifications relaying to Paris Universal Exhibition. In 1855, Napoleon III asked a panel to break the region’s wines down by price (therefore, hopefully, quality as well). These 1855 classifications were never meant to be an official quality roster but remain mostly unchanged at today.
