Situated in Bordeaux, La Cité du Vin is a unique venue for culture and recreation where wine comes to life through an immersive, sensorial approach, all set within an evocative architectural design. La Cité du Vin gives a different view of wine, across the world, across the ages, across all cultures and all civilisations. The mission is to promote and share the cultural, universal and living heritage that is wine with the broadest possible audience. The opening is at the 31st of May and the doors open at the 1st of June.
The visitor will have the chance to taste Cretan wine, from indigenous varieties and to get information about the island of Crete. It is a very important step for the “Wines of Crete”, that the Cretan wine will be for three years at such a unique place. This effort of the winemakers of Crete is a part of their strategic goal to promote the island as a gastronomic and wine destination.
