A Day in the Vineyard – Bordeaux Wine Festival Program

June 2023

What is “A Day in the Vineyard”?

It’s experiencing the vineyard as if you were there. To achieve this, we have brought the best activities from the Bordeaux vineyards to our Bordeaux Wine Festival booth.

Behind this exciting lineup, there is a collective effort from vineyard estates, guest houses, festivals, sports events, restaurants, cellars, and wine bars, which are bustling all year round. They offer the public the opportunity to discover wine tourism in all its forms: fun, unique, family-friendly, indulgent, cultural, and above all… super cool!

In total, there are over 1000 of them in the Bordeaux region, offering quality hospitality and incredible activities! Come and meet them, and discover them throughout the year, for a day… or a longer stay.


The program, offered by vineyard estates and vineyard ambassadors






Every morning: We start off gently with a relaxation session, sophrology… The idea is simple: realign your chakras and discover mindful tasting.

Every noon: 1 PM is the time for the Chef’s Workshop. On the menu, preparation of gourmet recipes and tasting with a chef from Bordeaux.
