Wining and dining in Bordeaux

As the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux has numerous restaurants and bars with cellars and wine lists featuring products from the best wineries.

With over 116,150 hectares of vineyards and 10,000 châteaux that produce wine, any wine you drink here is likely to come from one of the 960 million bottles produced in Bordeaux every year.

You can choose from everyday wines or expensive wines – red, white, or any other variety you prefer that the bars and restaurants feature here. The city also has numerous cafes where you can relax after a few hours of shopping. Visit the restaurants that use organic produce to prepare their delicious fares. If you are a wine connoisseur, you should opt for a location close to a wine-producing chateaux or vineyards, so you can visit whenever you feel like it.

Bordeaux has numerous shopping locations. Whether you want to pick a designer dress from one of the high-end stores in the city, or a curio from a local store, you will have plenty of options. Rue Sainte-Catherine is a 1.2 kilometre long stretch from where you can shop for small, inexpensive French artefacts, and Place de Comedie is a great location from where you can pick chic items. Bordeaux has a love of arts which is evidenced by the numerous museums that exhibit royalist souvenirs, paintings, tapestry art and much more.

    Not sure I agree with Bordeaux being one of the most beautiful cities in the country. I went to school there and it was pretty grey and miserable and not a patch on some of the other cities I’ve visited in France. People were pretty miserable too, however, gastronomically, they do know what they’re doing. Had the great honour of staying at Chateau Lafite for three weeks when I was younger and it was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life!

    France has so many beautiful places and Bordeaux should be at the top of anyones list who wishes to taste some of the worlds best wines!

  3. When going to Bordeaux, consider extending your stay and visit the most discreet French vineyards but, at the same time, the most famous for its product : the Cognac. There, one may taste cognacs of course, but also local black truffles, local foie gras, discover also that vodka Grey Goose was born there, that Grande Champagne area is not producing sparkling wines but the best cognacs, that the biggest concentration of traditional distilleries in the world is there with some in the same families for 15 generations!!!…

    All of this is one hour drive north of Bordeaux…
