After three long years of waiting for a name, the Bordeaux wine cultural centre finally has one: the City of Civilisations Wine (Cite des Civilisations de Vin).
The centre’s budget is 63 million euros and is due to open in 2015. Project manager Philippe Massolhas reported that construction will take place by April 2013 with an aim to open the centre by the end of 2015. Renowned architects Anouk Legendre and Nicolas Desmazières are responsible for the design. The centre hopes to be a flagship building for the region – it will stand 50 metres high and be coated in 3100 glass panels. It is hoped that the centre will attract 400,000 visitors every year. Capital Vintners is excited to head out to Bordeaux to visit the centre when it opens in a few years’ time.
