The Cité du Vin


The Cité du Vin has a dedicated cultural offer and a wide range of experiences aimed at professionals for their corporate events (congresses, conferences, meetings, receptions or team-building events), all in the heart of an emblematic cultural venue in Bordeaux.

The Cité du Vin has a 250-seat auditorium equipped with a control room and translation booths, modular reception rooms (up to 400 people for cocktails), 7 meeting rooms for 6 to 50 people equipped with a video conference system.
