Wine and gastronomy
Bordeaux is a gourmet city! The capital of the Aquitaine region benefits from the fact that all the specialities of southwest France are in its back yard: foie gras from the Landes, oysters from Arcachon Bay, strawberries from the Périgord, Bazaz beef, etc. And Bordeaux is also the heart of the largest fine wine producing region in the world! Margaux, Saint-Emilion, Sauternes, Pessac-Léognan, etc. are magic names that make wine lovers around the world salivate. Of course, the best way to appreciate these wines is at a good meal – and Bordeaux has more than its fair share of fine restaurants!
