Sip and Buy Wine at Bordeaux’s Train Station
It had to be Bordeaux... Recently, Gare St Jean, Bordeaux’s sprawling 19th century railway station added a new retail store to its array of restaurants and book stores: Le Pavillon des Vins de Bordeaux, a state-of-the-art wine store opened in May 2017. Being a major tourist hub and centre for commerce as well as one of France’s largest cities, Bordeaux sees considerable commercial and tourist traffic. It is one of France’s biggest seaside resorts and — most importantly, the world’s foremost wine destination.
