Bordeaux Wine Festival in Liverpool and an exchange of bottles!



Bordeaux Wine Festival in Liverpool

Liverpool has chosen to host a festival dedicated to Bordeaux’s wines to coincide with the departure of the Tall Ships Regatta for Dublin-Bordeaux, from 25 to 28 May 2018. The Tall Ships Regatta and Bordeaux Wine Festival will thus be incorporated into the Mersey Festival (the name of Liverpool’s river). A two-fold way of creating a bridge between the arrival and departure cities of the Tall Ships!

To further strengthen these links, a ship will depart from Bordeaux in May and deliver a barrel of wine to our English friends...

Message in a bottle

In return, one of the Tall Ships Regatta boats leaving from Liverpool will be transporting a monumental, participative work called Message in a Bottle by the artist Lulu Quinn (see

the Tall Ships section).

Music, music, music

In a tribute to Liverpool, there will also be a temporary recreation of the Cavern, the legendary English rock venue of the 1960s, a performance of some Beatles classics by Paul Daniel and the ONBA (see the Let’s Talk about the Wine section) and on a more restrained note, the presence of the Liverpool Tourism Office on the Bordeaux pavilion (see Tourism Destination section).
