    Preview of elaborate “city” in Bordeaux dedicated to wine civilizations

    La revue du vin de France (RVF) reveals that a portion of the future Cité des civilisations du vin in Bordeaux, projected to open by early 2016, will be unveiled during Vinexpo (June 2013). RVF says the project costs more than 60 million euros underwritten largely by public sources, notably the city of Bordeaux, the Aquitaine region, and the European Union, with about one-fourth coming from private financing from châteaux and négociants. Features of the museum are to include a “multisensory” exhibit, a panoramic restaurant, tasting workshops, an auditorium and space for temporary exhibitions. The arresting shape of the “city” is based on wine flowing into a glass and utilizes materials associated with wine including wood and glass. There will be “a tour of the world’s vineyards,” RVF reports, and profiles of Mendoza, California, Rioja, Georgia, Chianti and Marlborough. Themes related to wine such as art, love, eroticism, excess and the divine will also be presented. [A video and further detail can be found on centreculturelduvin.com and citedescivilisationsduvin.com.]
