What better way to celebrate their heritage than by openning wineries doors to the public, with wine tastings, guided tours, activities and pop up restaurants on offer. There are regular winery open-doors featuring individual wineries and the regions. Details from the tourist office. The very popular Bordeaux biannual wine festival : 'Bordeaux Fête le Vin' is held in June on the banks of the Garonne; the ideal place to try the local wines or take a wine tasting course. Tickets available online or from the tourist office. Don’t miss the parade of the famous St Emilion wine ambassadors, the Jurade.
