Charming Bordeaux - - BORDEAUX: GATEWAY TO THE VINEYARDS WINE-RELATED EV -

THE BOR­DEAUX WINE FES­TI­VAL IS TO PLAY HOST TO GRAND SAILING BOATS

Bor­deaux Fête le Vin, a wine fes­ti­val that is devoted to wines from Bor­deaux and the Nou­velle Aquitaine re­gion, will be held from June 14 - 18, 2018, along the Bor­deaux river­front, a UNESCO World Her­itage site. In just a mat­ter of years, with hun­dreds of thou­sands of vis­i­tors, the bi­en­nial fes­ti­val has be­come the lead­ing Euro­pean wine tourism event.

For its 20th an­niver­sary, the guest of hon­our at Bor­deaux Fête le Vin will be the pres­ti­gious Tall Ships Re­gatta, a race that brings to­gether the world’s big­gest and most eye­catch­ing sail­boats for a re­gatta that will take them from Liver­pool to Dublin and then Bor­deaux. The boats will drop an­chor in the Port de la Lune on June 14th and set sail again on the morn­ing of Mon­day June 18th in a tall ships pa­rade.

Over the 5-day pe­riod, Bor­deaux will be the cap­i­tal of wine... and sailing: the theme of this an­niver­sary fes­ti­val! www.bor­deauxfetelevin.com
