IF YOU WANT TO GO FURTHER...
Every day, once the Bordeaux Wine Festival has begun, visitors can continue their discovery of Bordeaux wines with the Pass Vignobles: excursions to winemaking châteaux. Either in the morning, the afternoon or for a whole day, visitors can head out to meet winemakers, from prestigious châteaux or family-run properties, world famous appellations and hidden gems, by minibus, coach or by boat. The choices are vast and the themes vary enormously: wine and heritage, wine and gastronomy, bike trips among the vines, oenological cruises or even visiting 3 different appellations in one day. Reserve online at www.bordeaux-tourisme.com
ORGANIC WINES ARE JOINING THE PARTY!
A group of organic wine producers looking to show the product their vintages will be offering a large range of their wines: reds, rosés, clairets, dry or sweet whites, sparkling wines, with- of course- a predominance of Bordeaux appellations, but also neighbouring ones too. The National Opera of Bordeaux has put itself forward to provide musical entertainment. The leader, Paul Daniel, has chosen to pay homage to Liverpool with some of The Beatles’ biggest hits. For this unusual concert, where the musicians are combining jeans and trainers with tailcoats, Paul Daniels is aiming to get the public to dance to some tangos and to film music. Friday 15th June, evening (time to be confirmed) Darwin Entrance fee: €10. Limited number of places. Information www.bordeaux-wine-festival.com
