Bordeaux is a coastal French city that is perhaps best known for being the wine capital of France and the world. Vineyards abound here, as do stately castles and historic chateaus. Not only are many of the annual events centred on wine in Bordeaux, but also, so are the attractions.
Travelling to Bordeaux via private jet correlates to the elegance of France and its wine country. Many wine enthusiasts travel this way to take advantage of seasonal wine purchases and time spent unwinding in the French countryside.

Bordeaux has much to offer and while much of it is centred on the wine production that happens here, there are also wide stretches of lush green countryside and funky French boutiques and eateries lining the region.
La Cite du Vin
Bordeaux's premier culture centre, La Cite du Vin is not only a celebration of the wine-making that is so important to the city, but also, it represents the innovative and futuristic atmosphere that Bordeaux has worked hard to create. Equal parts tech-inspired museum and Wine History 101, this huge feat of architecture is a must-stop on your Bordeaux itinerary.
Tour the Vineyards
No trip to Bordeaux would be complete without a tour of the area's vineyards. You could pick several on your own and head out, or schedule one of the many guided tours that pick and choose to optimize your experience.
