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
