We may celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July, but for Bordeaux and the rest of France, their celebration of liberty comes on the 14th, better known as Bastille Day. For wine fans, (and fans of fun) it’s a date not to be missed. A quick Google search will show you the local bars and restaurants where you should head to take part in some flavorful French culture. Hit up a summer fête and see how those in Bordeaux rejoice on the biggest day of their year. With everything from pétanque to pastries, you’ll drink in the culture and, of course, enjoy some great cheese and wine.
Already planning a Bastille Day soirée? Post your pics on social media with the hashtag #BordeauxLife for a chance to win one of our limited edition Yoleaux shirts! (While supplies last). So get out and enjoy this weekend, but before you go, brush up on white Bordeaux and learn all you need to know on what’s cool to drink this summer >>
