Wine lovers cannot help but be excited by the range of wine bars which populate Bordeaux’s side streets as instead of heading out to châteaux, visitors can taste well-known wines it the city itself.
Château Yquem, Haut-Brion, Pétrus, Mouton Rothschild and many others are now open for tasting. Whereas most bars will serve a number of wines by the glass, a few, such as Max Bordeaux and Aux 4 Coins du Vin, have invested in Enomatic machines, with a wide range of wines available to sample, including classified growths.
Gone too are the days when it was unusual to find good quality wines from outside of the region and even from the rest of France, with the arrival of La Ligne Rouge and Le Flacon. The Urban Wine Trail will surely help you to find the best wine bar in Bordeaux, a dedicated itinerary is now online!
