Vineyards and wine, particularly signature varieties like Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot are staples from the Bordeaux region. This wine country between the rivers Garonne and the Dordogne is behind most of the red wine bottled with Bordeaux supérieur labels. Dégustation tours and vineyard hopping aside, travelers seeking culture and heritage can soak in the ambiance of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bordeaux city, while art lovers will find a treasure trove at Le Passage Saint Michel. Set by the Garonne River, the port city of Bordeaux is famous for the Basilica of St. Michel with its tall stone towers, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, quaint river quays, the iconic Three Graces fountain and lovely public gardens. A young and experimental spirit marks the city, known for its good food and exciting nightlife.
