Bordeaux Wine Festival

Bordeaux Wine Festival

From Friday 25 – Monday 28 May, Bordeaux’s finest export comes to Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront during the Three Festival’s Tall Ships Regatta. A UK premiere; Liverpool is being embraced into the Bordeaux ‘Fete le Vin’ family alongside Brussels, Hong Kong, Quebec and Bordeaux – and will give the beautiful French city the warmest of welcomes in return.

In fact, this is set to be one of most sought-after festival tickets in town this May Bank Holiday weekend, with a special event tasting pass opening up a wonderful world of wine adventure.

The Gallic ‘fete le vin’ pays homage to all the wines from Bordeaux.

Take your specially-branded Bordeaux wine glass and carrying case and enjoy up to six tastings along with the chance to learn all about the diversity of Bordeaux wines (reds, rosés, whites, sparkling and sweet wines) from the official ‘L’École Du Vin De Bordeaux’ – Bordeaux Wine School. Visitors can then purchase Bordeaux wine during the event.

Our specially created Vins de Bordeaux Pavilions will feature over 65 appellations from the Bordeaux region, while the Bordeaux Wine School will offer lessons in how to taste and experience the diversity of Bordeaux wines (reds, rosés, whites, sparkling and sweet wines).


Your ticket entitles entry to one of the three-hour sessions across the weekend. Please note tickets are non-refundable or exchangeable so ensure you select the correct session you wish to attend.
