Very good exhibition, very broad, slightly too high-tech for us! would have preferred some wine as you go round (2 hours plus) - all you get is a small tasting voucher for a glass at the end...interesting exhibition of wines from every country in the...More

Attended the Julie to Julia film and the after show wine and food...what a great experience! Wished we had arrived earlier to take in all the displays. Recommend this venue.

The Cite was only completed in 2016. It is a wine museum but also a place for interactive displays, movies on wine and exhibitions. It is a must see in Bordeaux even if you are not that interested in wine. Easily accessible by tram, 20...More

To get the full effect of the mirror, it’s best to see when it’s not raining. The reflections of the beautifully architected buildings is a great photo opp, as is the steam rising ! The walk along the waterfront makes this an easy “attraction” to...More

Great building and lots of videos and displays BUT a very meagre, one-sided view of the World of Wine. Frankly dull- we felt there was nothing either educational or immersive in this experience and the total reliance on headsets made it both alienating and solitary.

Visited before 1200 noon with a City Pass. Extremely busy and took a while to find out what was there and what you could do. Unable to access the wine tasting due to the large number of visitors. Not what we were expecting

This is a very interesting place to visit, with a glass of wine at the end of the experience! True, the layout is a bit haphazard, with no particular plan leading from one exhibit to the next, but most of it is hands on, and...More
