2018 : Vins de Bordeaux and legendary tall ships…  

Bordeaux Fête le Vin will celebrate its 20th anniversary and host the finale of the Liverpool-Dublin-Bordeaux Tall Ships Regatta.


From time immemorial in the history of Bordeaux, its wines and port seem to have experienced similar destinies.

They have learnt from one another how to develop, to rise to the highest level in maritime trade, and they contribute to the city’s growing fame.

In 2018, the port will relive the thrill of the legendary Cutty Sark race, which brought together hundreds of thousands of people along the riverfront in 1990. 

On June 14th, the arrival of some thirty ships in Bordeaux, with their sails, flags and banners will be a magnificent display paying tribute to Bordeaux Fête le Vin stretching out along the riverfront.
