The Port of the Moon

With a long history of producing regional wines since the Romans brought grapevines here during the first century, so many people consider Bordeaux to be the wine capital of the world.
Get some cultural insight at Place de la Bourse and La Cite du Vin. Venture out of the city with trips to Chateau de Monbazillac (in Monbazillac), French Wine Adventures (in Saussignac) and Chateau Lardy (in Razac-de-Saussignac). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Andre Cathedral, admire the striking features of Tour Pey-Berland, examine the collection at Musee d'Aquitaine, and admire the masterpieces at CAPC Musee d'Art Contemporain.
