Bordeaux Fête le Vin 2004 

From Thursday July 1 to Sunday July 4, Bordeaux will be hosting a four-day festival celebrating the wine and food and architectural and cultural heritage of one of the most famous wine growing regions in the world.

The event takes place at the Place des Quinconces (a 12-hectare exhibition centre) set in the heart of Bordeaux, along the banks of the River Garonne. Visitors will also be able to enjoy this beautiful 18th-century city – strolling through old Bordeaux and its street markets, admiring the architecture of the Grand Théâtre, shopping in the antique-dealers neighbourhood, and finding superb old buildings around every corner. This year, Bordeaux welcomes its twin town, Munich, to a festival committed to discovery, new beginnings, knowledge and learning.

Open Sesame!
Visitor's "Taste" and "Discover" passes are essential to enjoy the many activities planned during the exhibition, including excursions to the Gironde vineyards. This year the passes will be available from April 30 to allow visitors ample time to plan their holiday in advance. For more information, contact (011 33) 05 56 00 66 00.

The Tasting Pass
The 10 Euro pass entitles visitors to eleven tastings, a glass, a folder and an official program. Throughout this four-day festival, visitors will have an opportunity to taste a wide range of wines from across the region as well as to meet the people who make and sell the wines. The 57 regions of Bordeaux and the 23 regions of Aquitaine will be represented through a number of marquees situated in the Grande Place D'Europe.

The Discovery Pass
Created in association with the Comité Départemental du Tourisme de la Gironde, the 20 Euro Discovery Pass offers visitors access to visit two of twelve remarkable destinations in the area: Chateaux Roquetaillade and Mongenan; the vineyards of Medoc, Saint Emilion, Sauternes and Graves; the Blaye Citadelle; the Cap Ferret peninsular; and the Arcachon Basin. This pass is valid from May 2 to July 12, 2004. For more information, contact (011 33) 05 56 52 61 40.

Munich, Guest of Honour!
This year is the 40th anniversary of the Bordeaux-Munich twinning. In honour of this association, a huge German stand (600 m²) will feature a wide variety of activities. Munich, as this year's guest of honour, will play a prominent role throughout the exhibition.

Exhibition Highlights
This year's highlights include the great Bacchus banquet, key personalities from Bordeaux, concerts, fireworks and many other attractions.
