Spotlight on: Bordeaux

Summer is just around the corner, and what could be more relaxing than a trip to France for fine wine and fine dining? Bordeaux not only has both those things, but it’s also very beautiful as well. Whether you’ve got a couple of days there or a week, here are some things you can do to make the most of your stay.

1. Wine Tasting Lesson

If you’re going to be drinking loads of wine, you might as well learn how to do it properly. Head to the Ecole du Vin in the centre of Bordeaux, and you can learn more than you ever imagined about the history of wine, how it’s produced, and taste some really gorgeous ones too.

2. Take a trip to the vineyards

For a reasonable price, you can take a day trip out to two vineyards. You can book these from the tourist office in the centre of the town, right opposite the Ecole du Vin, and they’re really helpful in there. The vineyards that they travel to differ from day to day, but you’re sure to be in for a treat. You can see how winemakers grow and process their wine, and of course a tasting is included!

3. Go to the seafront where you can find bars and restaurants with a wonderful view of the shoreline. These guys know their wine, and rather than pick off a list, you’ll probably be invited down to the cellar (see below) to choose your own bottle from all they have!

If you decide to go to Bordeaux, prepare to spend money on food and wine – but you won’t regret it. Bordeaux is also a beautiful city, with fabulous architecture and it really comes alive at night, with tucked away bars and musicians playing together in the side streets. You’re sure to have a wonderful trip.
