"A total of no fewer than 176 nationalities came to discover the cultures and civilisations of wine: 70% French and 30% foreigners, with the number of overseas visitors continuing to grow. Top of the list are the British followed by Americans, Spaniards, Swiss, Germans and Italians in that order”, said the Cité du Vin in a press release, stressing that over 90% of visitors said they were satisfied or very satisfied with their visit.

20% of visitors are not from Bordeaux

According to a survey conducted in conjunction with Kedge business school, 20% of visitors who do not live in the city of Bordeaux stated that they had come to Bordeaux for the Cité du Vin. Officially opened on 31 May 2016 by the then President François Hollande, the Cité du Vin welcomed 270,000 people in its first year and 445,000 in 2017.

The millionth visitor, a Breton, received an annual pass and dinner at the City's panoramic restaurant, Le 7.
