Planning a visit to one of the best wine regions in the world? Both wine connoisseurs and amateurs will want to take advantage of a new, bespoke service offered by the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux & Spa- a Wine Concierge who’ll organize exclusive visits and tasting sessions at prestigious Bordeaux chateaux (appellations like Margaux and St-Emilion). The Wine Concierge can also plan private tastings, with a specialist’s expert commentary, in the comfort of your own hotel suite, and track down coveted bottles of wine to enhance your cellar.
While you’re in town, make sure to unwind at the hotel’s Les Bains de Léa, a spa by Nuxe, which has incredible views of the UNESCO-listed city center from its rooftop perch. Facing the Grand Théâtre on the Place de la Comédie in the very heart of the city, the Grand Hotel de Bordeaux & Spa recently changed its name from The Regent (see our first-hand review of this Jacques Garcia-designed jewel here).
