Coming up in 2016 : Centre for Wine and Civilization in Bordeaux

Cite du vin petiteSydney has its opera house, Bilbao its Guggenheim and, in 2016, Bordeaux will have its very own emblematic contemporary monument to epitomise the region’s flagship product.

Alexandria had its lighthouse, one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world, to illuminate the Mediterranean. And, as of 2016, Bordeaux will have its “Cité des civilisations du Vin”, a “lighthouse” shining with the expertise of thousands of years of winemaking.

This vast glass tower will be located at the entrance to the city on the banks of the Garonne, in the up-and-coming wet dock district. With its imaginative modern design, the Cité des Civilisations du Vin is sure to delight tourists and wine lovers in 2016.

Neither a museum nor a theme park, the City will blend the best of both these in a tour circuit that combines emotion, sensory stimulation, and dreams, as well as entertaining and spectacular multimedia presentations.

An observation deck on the top of the tower will give visitors a bird’s-eye view of the city and the surrounding vineyards.
