Home Bordeaux Cite du vin Bordeaux Cite du vin Bordeaux’s wine cultural museum, previously called ‘Cité des Civilisations du Vin‘ and now simply the Bordeaux ‘Cité du Vin‘, is set to open in April 2016. It has already cost millions of euros more than expected, plus several years, to build. Bordeaux’s mayor, Alain Juppé, has promised extra public funds to complete the project, which is envisaged as a centrepiece of Bordeaux’s wine tourism agenda. But, the Cité du Vin has not been designed as simply a museum of Bordeaux wine, it is also expected to be a cultural centre for the entire world of wine. A logo for the Bordeaux Cité du Vin was unveiled on 27 October 2015 and project managers said a shop at the centre would stock wines from ‘at least 87 countries’. The first vines were planted at Cité du Vin in 2013.
