It was in June that Capital Lifestyle shared about the grand opening of La Cité du Vin or “The City of Wine” – a museum-theme park dedicated to wine – in the beautiful Bordeaux, France. In an exciting new venture, Capital Lifestyle together with Maniago Executive Travel Designers will be offering an exclusive trip to this evocation of the soul of wine, and discover the main Bordeaux Appellations: Medoc, Margaux, Pauillac, St Emilion and Pessac-Léognan & Sauternes.
Dubbed #BordeauxWineTour, the 5-day dream trip of many foodies and wine lovers will depart from Nairobi on 22nd of October and return on 27th of October.
Day 1 of this trip of a lifetime will begin at La Cité du Vin, which will provide an immersive experience, one that gives a different view of wine, across the world, across the ages, across all cultures and all civilizations. The museum-theme park will feature material that will promote and share the cultural, universal and living heritage that is wine, whilst having a focus on emotions, sensations and imagination. Most importantly, the museum-theme park aims to pass on knowledge interactively.
Designed by architects Anouk Legendre and Nicolas Desmazières from XTU architects, the building certainly makes an impact on Bordeaux’s skyline. It is a journey in itself, creating a place filled with symbols of identity: the knotted vine stocks, wine turning in the glass, the swirls and eddies of the Garonne river. Each and every architectural detail evokes liquid elements and the very soul of wine.
Be it for a few hours, a day, or an evening, La Cité du Vin offers a unique panorama, both in view and in knowledge, of everything you would ever want to know about wine – all enjoyed while sipping a glass of wine in one of the great wine-producing areas of the world.
What else is in store for you during this 6-day trip filled with copious amounts of delicious French wine, captivating landscapes and great conversations? Stay tuned to Capital Lifestyle as the impressive itinerary is revealed!
