Visit Bordeaux’s Cité du Vin, an €81m hi-tech museum devoted to wine. Just over an hour away from The Courtyard, and dubbed the Guggenheim of wine, the building is a vast glass tower, said to be “inspired by wine swilling around in a glass”. Inside, the exhibition explores the evolution of wine and honours all vintages on the planet from 80 wine-producing countries. Highlights include an immersive journey through the maritime history of wine, a bouquet sniffing game and a “chair of despair”, where you listen to famous people describing their hangovers.
