Bordeaux | New Aquitaine

You'll be raising your glass many times in Bordeaux, which is renowned for its wines, considered among the best in the world. †

Synonymous with wine, the Bordelais (Bordeaux region) is the French countryside at its bucolic best, all ancient villages and crumbling towers and rolling vineyards screaming for the four ‘B’s: a bicycle, baguette, bottle and some brie. The city of Bordeaux itself boasts magnificent architecture and fine museums, while exquisite Saint-Emilion is a UNESCO World Heritage site. A new generation of vineyard owners has turned vineyard tourism into a lovely confluence of epicurean imbibing and outdoors exposure.
