What To Expect

With this skip-the-line ticket to La Cité du Vin in Bordeaux, the way you spend your time is up to you. Because you get to bypass waiting in huge lines packed with people, there’s more time to enjoy the site and all it has to offer.

Admire the museum’s modern outdoor architecture before heading inside to take advantage of the exhibits. Learn all about wine culture and dive deep into certain interests as you stroll along through more than 20 different wine-themed areas. You can follow an interactive guide on a hand-held travel device, or just travel through reading information at your own pace.

After you’re done, go up to the eighth floor to the Belvedere. Get a tasting with your admission ticket of a world wine, and then decide if you’d like to purchase a glass or two of wine (own expense) while you relax. See 360-degree views of the city on this floor — the room has floor-to-ceiling glass windows all the way around.

La cite du vin
Ani_R, Aug 2023
It’s ok. The building is beautiful and learned a lot about wines. The only downside was the tasting, we were allowed to just try one specific wine, we wanted to try one more to decide which one to buy but we were told that the place was not a bar. I think that was a little rude. But I still recommend going; it is a nice place to visit
Great Wine Experience
Karen_C, Aug 2023
Beautiful presentation and loads of exhibits. A bit confusing at first so be sure to speak to someone about procedures. Surprised their cafe or restaurant choices weren’t a bit better. Mediocre at best. Overall definitely enjoyable for all ages.
First Class

My husband and I enjoyed the many interactive activities. It was interesting and entertaining. We purchased wine in the store downstairs afterward and ate lunch in their restaurant. We spent an entire day there! We would most definitely recommend!

A must visit
ElisA_D, Mar 2023
A must do and plan to spend at least two hours. For those who know wine it may be a redundant however the interactive experience makes the information new even if you think you are an expert!
Fun way to explore wine in Bordeaux
GUY_P, Dec 2022
A wonderful way to learn a little more about Bordeaux and the wine region. Self-guided audio tour was effortless. The museum’s technology is nothing shy of amazing with interactive stops that actually allow you to use all senses to appreciate all that wine has to offer.
Outstanding Experience.
Larry_C, Nov 2022
An amazing collection of wine information from all over the world. Interactive experience at your own pace and ends with a wine tasting.
Never use Viatour - always book directly with the venue
Carolyn_G, Oct 2022
The venue could not find our booking and made us pay again - even though Viatour co firmed. Viatour was a total waste of money and we have asked for a refund
Benedicte_M, Oct 2022
Amazing experience! What a spectacular museum! So rich! However you should explain better how to use the audio guide and I think that it would be better to finish by the thematic part. We lost 30-45 mn at the beginning. Too bad.
Interactive wine museum experience!
Maria_S, Sep 2022
A must do in Bordeaux! This is a fabulous experience in learning more about wines around the world, the vineyards, the senses, plus wine tasting too. They have a beautiful panoramic restaurant and a gift shop. Highly recommended!!!!
