Bordeaux, French capital of wine and food – France Gourmet


If you are a wine lover and enjoy fine cuisine then you need to visit Bordeaux. Located in the southwest of France, not far from the Bay of Biscay, Bordeaux offers more vineyards—more than 100,000—than you could possibly try, but there’s glory even in just scratching the surface. You can combine sightseeing of a vibrant city and enjoy the sandy beaches while reading your favourite book.
