Don't miss the wine bar that is EXTREMELY lively from 5-7 each night in Bordeaux. Just across from the Tourist Bureau but NOT a tourist place. Many locales. I was surprised by the low cost of a glass of wine (3E?) -- try the creameaux (sp?), lovely! good place to try wines from different regions around bordeaux. LIttle small plates... More

The wine is wonderful and the pours are generous - all at a bargain price! The waiters work very hard and are super attentive. This was one of our favorite places to enjoy a glass of wine.

This is the wine bar for the University of bordeaux. You can get tastes of wine and glasses of wine that are delicious and really inexpensive and lots of small plates that are very good

I spent several hours in the bar tasting wines and working on my laptop. Seriously, a pleasure. The Bar was the best I have been to and the wines were simply irresistible. Right in the heart of the city... When I come back to Bordeaux, I will be sure to swing by again.

A friend and I had drinks and small plates at the Ecole de Vin and it was such a lively, sophisticated atmosphere. Great value for money and quite tasty dishes. Highly recommend it!

After visiting a couple of vineyards, a visit to 'L'école du vin' is a must. It is very instructive and the setup is well layed out. All of us now know the entire wine-fabrication process and the love that the winemakers put into their business. To complete the tour, there is a wine tasting part and you can also buy... More

This is a modern furnished wine school with a bar area for tasting a wide selection at reasonable prices per glass. We didn't do a class but stopped in a couple of times for some lovely wine. Unfortunately, they do not sell the bottles to you and the wine shops we went to did not stock them. However, a nice... More

We attended the school's 2-day Technical course and 2-day Practical course, which are only offered in October and May. (In May, there is also a 3-day Grand Crus course immediately following the Technical and Practical.) The courses were both outstanding. You spend most of your time in the classroom, which is comfortable and well-equipped. For the Technical Course, you visit... More
