The highest place for wine-tasting in Bordeaux!

Published 11 May 2018

How would you like to enjoy one of the finest panoramic views of the whole of Bordeaux from the top of an exceptional modern building? Whether you live in Bordeaux or are just passing through, finding a wine-tasting venue with a view right across Bordeaux is no easy matter!

La Cité du Vin offers you an unrivalled 360° view over Bordeaux and the surrounding area from its iconic venue: the Belvedere.


The Belvedere is the brightest place in the building and boasts an original feature with its monumental chandelier composed of thousands of bottles. Up at a height of 35 metres, the Belvedere can be visited once you have been around the famous Permanent Tour and is now also open on the first Friday of each month for our “The Hour After” afterwork sessions! Taste wines from some of the world’s finest wine regions and take in the view that stretches out at your feet!

For all these reasons, the Belvedere is the place to go to discover Bordeaux and the Garonne in all their splendour!

Visit the permanent tour

As you have no doubt understood, La Cité du Vin is the best place to learn all about the cultures and civilisations of wine, to take in the city of Bordeaux from the Belvedere and taste a glass of good wine! Make sure you schedule a visit to La Cité du Vin to enjoy an experience like no other!
