Chic and cosy atmosphere at the CIVB wine bar

To find this wine bar, head towards the Maison du Vin de Bordeaux, headquarters of the Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins de Bordeaux (Bordeaux Wine Bureau), which is located right by the Grand-Théâtre and Place des Quinconces. You will find the wine bar on the ground floor of this 18th century building. The design is chic and airy, cosy and refined. It’s a beautiful combination of old stained glass windows, high ceilings and new, contemporary furniture. Take a seat in either the soft armchairs or atop the bar stools. In fair weather, make the most of the sunny terrace, with its view of the Grand-Théâtre.

Taste from a selection of around 30 wines, which is refreshed regularly and features: reds, dry and sweet whites, rosés, clarets and sparkling wines. Cheese, cold meats, or chocolate are served to accompany your drink. Affordable.

Luxury tastings at Max Bordeaux

Would you like to taste the best Bordeaux wines? You’ve come to the right place. At Max, you will find real gems... that are expensive, of course. La Tour, Château Margaux, Laffite, Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild Haut Brion, Yquem... But you can taste these classic grands crus by the glass (2, 4 or 8 cl). This nice concept allows visitors to try wines that are often inaccessible by the bottle. A designer look and cosy atmosphere welcome guests. It’s an unmissable place for both Bordeaux wine lovers and passing tourists.

A convivial evening at Wine & Soul

Located in the Chartrons area, near the Saint-Louis church, this bar is made of exposed stone, and provides a background of jazz or soul, where the welcome is particularly warm. Jérémy, the owner, is the main attraction! Good wine and delicious tapas-style dishes are all at very reasonable prices. One of the best wine bars in Bordeaux for a great evening with local wines, friends and family.
