At first glance, the architecture of the building does not leave indifferent. It is a journey in itself, shaping a place full of identity symbols: vineyard of the vine, wine that turns in the glass, swirls of the Garonne. Each detail of the architecture evokes the soul of the wine and the liquid element. Composed of more than 13 350 m² spread over 10 levels culminating at 55 meters, La Cité du Vin invites you to discover it.

A strong architectural gesture conceived by the architects Anouk Legendre and Nicolas Desmazières of the agency XTU architects, it marks by its form and its audacious curves, its reflections changing as the seasons, days and hours. Let yourself be carried away by this feeling of movement, of uninterrupted flow between the exterior and the interior of the building. Embark on the adventure of wine under the wooden vault of the torus, recalling the massive structure of a ship taking to the sea.
