A number of tasting events are unmissable for any Bordeaux wine lover.
In its 10th year, the 4-day, biennial Bordeaux Wine Festival in June showcases over 80 appellations. Barrel rolling competitions, concerts and fireworks along the quayside provide a break from tasting wine! Shorter in duration, the Blaye Spring Festival in April offers tasting and blending workshops in the citadel plus the opportunity to meet with winemakers and an option to arrive by boat. For high-end wines, the Weekend des Grands Crus facilitates access to over 100 châteaux owners and their wines, while châteaux visits, lunches and golf round off the activities. Finally for the sport lovers, the Medoc's Marathon is displayed today as a reference. Do not forget to consult the agenda of Bordeaux and its region.
