Construction[edit]

The cost of the construction has been underestimated. In January 2011, the cost of the construction had been estimated at 63 million euros excluding taxes,[1] but at the end of 2014, as the construction was in progress, the cost of the structure has been re-evaluated to reach 81,1 million euros excluding taxes.[1]

Opening[edit]

Its official opening by the President of France François Hollande and Alain Juppé took place on May 31, 2016.[2]

The Cité du Vin is accessible by tram (Line B which connects Berges de la Garonne to Pessac Center and France Alouette), by the ring road, by the Chaban-Delmas bridge and by lines 7 and 32 of the TBM network. A stop of the Batcub is located nearby.
