If you like me long to taste red Bordeaux wines but dont want to have to buy the bottle, then this is the place for you. I was like a kid in a sweet shop trying all the delicious wines, the prices were very reasonable too. This place is a real treat.

this is lovely. Great setting. Stupendously great wines for between 2.5 and 4.25 euros. This is a great stop. Also have wine tastings, classes et cetera, but just grab a glass of wine. It is really great.

Structured environment provides a good learning experience. Put your newly gained knowledge to test in the wine bar downstairs.

This is the best place ever! Absolutely beautiful when you walk in, with amazing decor of empty wine bottles filling the walls and the location couldn't be more perfect. Then as this bar has been subsidised by the council, the prices are incredible for such a large, tasty, good quality glass of wine. Haven't tried the food before however.

Although primary a wine tasting venue, you can match your chosen wines with a cheese or meat plate to get the full benefit of the great Bordeaux wines on offer. The wines are poured by the glass and priced at a very reasonable and respectable price, around €5 or €6 per 15ml glass. They will even pour you two different... More

Centrally placed near the theatre. Can be busy. We decided not to queue the first time we tried to go in, but came back a day later and there was no queue. You can often be in this central part of Bordeaux doing other things. The seating was very comfy and informal. There was no feeling of crowding, the seats... More

Right opposite the Office de Tourisme Bordeaux and close by from the Opera National de Bordeaux, this is a wonderful location near walking street Rue Sainte Catherine. We stopped by for some white, rose, red wines and a Deli plate. Ordered the sparkling grape juice for the kids and they loved it. Wait staff spoke good English and were polite.... More

We had to wait to be seated at this place, and it was worth the wait. Relaxed atmosphere, great choice of wines, knowledgeable staff and great little sharing plates of cheese and meats. We would come back for sure if back in Bordeaux!!
